The New York Public Library's Selling 22,000 Vinyl LPs This WeekendS

Hell yes. The NYPL's Rodgers and Hammerstein Archives of Recorded Sound is selling off 22,000 LPs at cut-rate prices this weekend.

The LPs are all duplicates the library has received that it already has a copy of on file. So, they're priced to move, with all the proceeds going to expanding the collection. Here are details about the sale, which started yesterday:

When: August 8th, Noon - 7:45pm and August 9th and 10th, Noon - 5:45pm.

Where: The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, Lincoln Center, Donald and Mary Oenslager Gallery, First Floor.

We will do our best to provide bags. If you think you will need a box - you know who you are - we will have some on hand while they last.

Cash is preferred. Credit cards accepted only for purchases of $100 or more.

So either get your ass to the Lincoln Center today or tomorrow, or stay the hell away from the Lincoln Center the next few days if you can't deal with vinyl snobs. [NYPL via Vinyl Factory]
