Top Ten Christmas Music Albums

The media section of the library is one of my favorite places to hang out. The movie collection is incredible and the music selection is amazing, plus the staff is always good for a great recommendation. This Christmas try out some new music, maybe from a genre that you don’t usually listen to. You might just find some new favorite tunes. Enjoy this week’s list, “Top Ten Christmas Music Albums”.
