Spin It Again library sessions
Published: 1 April 2016
ALL is not lost if you have a cupboard full of old LPs, cassettes, or even 78s, and no way to play them.
A special library information session will be held this month to show you how to give your valued collection a new lease on life by transferring them to a digital format.
Logan City Council Acting Deputy CEO – Community and Customer Services Annette Turner said a Spin it Again session would be held from 2pm on April 20 at the Marsden Library to teach participants how to convert their old LPs and cassettes to a CD or MP3 format as part of Logan City Council Libraries’ Maker Space program.
“This program is designed to give the community the avenue to access skills, stories and knowledge from interesting people with a wide array of skills,” Ms Turner said.
“This session will help to give you the tools you need to once again be able to enjoy your music collection and convert your favourite tunes to a digital format.
“We encourage anyone who is interested to dig out their old cassettes and LP’s and book into next month’s information session.”
“Through the Maker Space program you can learn a new craft, pick up a skill or hear a great story.
“Maker Spaces are places where people can come together to use and learn how to use materials as well as develop creative projects.
“The program gives community members access to tools or technology that are not sometimes not easily accessible in their homes or to purchase.”
