Your Community: Treat yourself with these online music resources

Enjoy a mix of music genres with access to Naxos music libraries using your Johnson County Library card.

Music has the power to move us all in different ways. It can lift us up when we’re feeling down, help us unwind, clear our minds, transport us to a time in the past and can be enjoyed alone or with others. And whether you’ve heard a song a million times or for the first time, it can make us tap our feet, nod our head, and in some cases, even get up and dance! That’s the power of music. That’s why Johnson County Library is pleased to offer online music resources, so you can enjoy music that moves you.
