Library selling 22,000 vinyl LPs for $1 each
NEW YORK – Hundreds of vinyl-record aficionados descended on the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts on Friday for a rare sale of LPs from the library’s collection. The three-day sale of 22,000 records started Thursday. It’s intended to clear out space and to raise money for future acquisitions and for preserving the library’s collection, curator Jonathan Hiam said. The sale is the first of its kind since 1984.
