Nashville Public Library has launched its own streaming music service that anyone can listen to for free.

It’s called BoomBox and it exclusively features local artists.

Just log on to the Nashville Public Library’s website, and you can listen.  In addition, library members can download the music -- 34 albums in total, with plans to expand the collection and bring in the artists for performances.

“We're hoping to have artists come at least once a month here at the main library, or some of our area branches, and we're planning shows offsite as well,” said Ryan Darrow, the librarian behind the project.

The library says even if they stop offering the music for download in the future, they'll have copies of it for people to listen to in the library for decades to come.
