Hennepin Co. Library releases first batch of music on MnSpin

A library card can now get you more than just books at the Hennepin County Library.

The library recently launched its own music streaming and download service, called MnSpin, with more than 50 albums from local artists and groups.

The collection was curated by a panel of five local music experts and library staff members. The first batch of MnSpin music includes a mix of rock, hip-hop, folk, country, R&B and jazz albums from both new and established artists in the Twin Cities music scene. 

Anyone can stream the music on MnSpin and library cardholders can also download songs for free.
