Local Music Project

Iowa City and Johnson County musicians have kindly (and bravely) leased us the right to offer their music to you. You can thank them by playing these albums often and going out to see them perform live!

If you have a library card and password, and live in Iowa City or an area that contracts with us (Iowa City, rural Johnson County, Hills or University Heights) you can download this music. Please share the love (but not the files) with friends.

No overdue fees! Put it on your phone. Play it at parties. Turn it up.

Let's get started:

1. Choose an album title below
2. Enter your valid Library card number and password
3. Choose a preferred file format
4. Save the ZIP file
5. Locate the downloaded ZIP folder, open it, drag the files to a preferred location
