Join us for an afternoon with Toki Wright to celebrate the kickoff of Vinyl Revival, a new series of artist residencies, programs and listening opportunities at Minneapolis Central Library. Wright will spin records from our collection, share tips and techniques for crate digging and introduce our new vinyl listening room. Check out some local music at one of the listening stations, create album cover artwork, make a button and explore a pop-up library just for kids.
