The 61st Annual GRAMMY awards are less than a month away. Need to catch up on the biggest hits of the year? Your Oakland Public Library is here to help, with nominated music available on hoopla and at the library.
hoopla is OPL's streaming music service. It also offers streaming video, ebooks, comics, and more — all with no holds ever. To sign up, you just need an email address, your library card number and library PIN. Patrons can check out eight items per month.
This crop of nominees is larger than in previous years: each of the "big four" general categories (Album, Record, and Song of the Year, along with Best New Artist) has expanded from five to eight nominees.
