Come in and check out our our new collection of vinyl LPs and a Crosley portable record player! If you have never used a record player it is a wonderful experience placing a record on the turntable, hearing the unique tone of vinyl, and then flipping over the record to hear the B-side! Guaranteed nostalgia. Our record player and albums are exclusively for Rose Memorial Library patrons. They are on display and ready for you to take home.
