  1. So can you all obtain whatever cd's you want for the library or does the request have to be special in nature or fit some criteria?

  2. We get a few CDs directly from the record labels, if they'd like us to review them. However, most are purchased or donated. We can't get everything, but if you have some ideas about what to add, just send me an email. We do what we can to add requested items.
