2010 Staff Music Picks

In late 2010, Skokie Public Library staff were asked to select their favorite musical recordings listened to during the year. Here are the results!

Click on the call number to check the status of the recording in the Skokie Public Library catalog. And, in case you missed them, it's not too late to see our Annual Staff Picks for books, films, and music from 2002 to the present!
