From the (Alexandrian) Library

You may have noticed that the infor­ma­tion on our From the Library series of pro­grammes (of which many of our dai­ly shows are a part) has just changed.

For over a year we have been pre­sent­ing From the Library – a series of pro­grammes in which Radio Riel’s pre­sen­ters, in con­junc­tion with the Cale­don Library in Sec­ond Life, have sought to share their inter­est in dif­fer­ent gen­res of music with our lis­ten­ers as part of our mutu­al goals: to edu­cate, inform and enter­tain. Thus in addi­tion to mere­ly play­ing our choice of music, we have sought to pro­vide addi­tion­al infor­ma­tion on the music, the com­posers, and the sto­ries and his­to­ry behind them, in this Pro­gramme Guide.

From today, we are pleased to announce that From the Library is now brought to you by the entire Alexan­dri­an Free Library Con­sor­tium. You can read more about the Con­sor­tium here, but suf­fice to say that the Con­sor­tium includes the fol­low­ing mem­bers:
