This weekend a mix CD was discovered at the Library. That is not so unusual, people often return their own CD's here by mistake. What was unusual about this CD was the hand written note on the cover, which read: Hello Stranger! If you have found this , I don't know you but I have made you a CD because music helps us all feel less alone, and there are some songs I think you should hear. The backlist is inside. If you don't like the music, then pass this on to someone you know, or hide it somewhere where someone else will find it.
The music ranged from The Dave Matthews Band, The Indigo girls, and Simon and Garfunkel, to a group called the Weepies. I wonder if the Library was the first recipient of this sweet gesture, or has it been passed on many times. It's a very cool idea.
