You just missed the vinyl sale at NYPL

I'm simultaneously kicking myself for not being in New York this past weekend and saddened that libraries are in a position of selling materials to raise revenue.
The NYPL sold 22,000 records from its Rodgers and Hammerstein Archives of Recorded Sound to make way for new materials.
They say that they already have a copy of each record they are selling, so I suppose this isn't really that depressing. Here's to hoping that they retain those vinyl records in their archive!
