The Library Director’s Annual Holiday Music Yule Blog
Thanksgiving has come and gone which means it’s time to dust off the annual “Don’t Touch That Dial” holiday mix.
I’ve been creating this playlist since 2008, and it’s one of the things I most look forward to. You’ll find there’s a little something for everyone in this one, including tunes by musicians we lost this year – Chuck Berry, Tom Petty, Glen Campbell, and David Cassidy, RIP. Enjoy.
All of us at Arlington Public Library believe we are lucky to live and work in a community that is welcoming, tolerant, curious and compassionate. And that wholeheartedly supports its libraries. From all of us to all of you, we are grateful for your support and wish you a safe and happy holiday season and bountiful new year.
We leave you with the chorus from one of my all-time favorite songs, John Lennon’s “Imagine,” the last song on this year’s playlist. Released as a single in October of 1971, the words are as resonant today as they were then.
“You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one”
With all good wishes,
