Groups of students from East Los Angeles College have been trying to get their administration to extend the library's standard operating hours for a few years now. This video was created to collect the views of the non-traditional students not typically accounted for. Some of the guiding questions included: 1) Do you go anywhere else to do school work after the library closes? 2) Why are you unable to access the standard library operating hours? 3) If you could tell president Martinez (currect E.L.A.C. president) anything, what would you say?
Nevada County Libraries need Measure A to continue and enhance library hours, preserve children's book collections, and maintain classes and technology for all Nevada County families. http://yes-on-a.com

Five holiday selections from a 16-2/3 RPM Seeburg Matching Christmas Library record labeled XMAS-23. Date of release unknown. These records provided holiday background music for department stores, restaurants and the like. Like other Seeburg records, these are music only, no singing to distract you from your Christmas shopping! Played on my ELAC Miracord 40A turntable.
Take a step back to 1960 and this is the kind of music you would have heard in the store, or even a factory. Im sure many of these same tunes were played over AM radio too, as these types of tunes were common back then. They are "adult standards" type of instrumentals and have all but been forgotten about today which is sad. I can see workers building zenith TV sets while this song was playing in the background. This particular record is of the "industrial" series, meaning it was intended for play in assembly plants and so forth. This is how we used to be, when everything was engineered and made in USA. Five tunes from a 16-2/3 RPM Seeburg Basic Background Music record labeled R-78. Played on an ELAC Miracord 40A turntable connected to an early 1960s Fisher 400 tube tuner/amp. Seeburg Basic Background Music was geared towards use in restaurants, department stores and the like. I used two computers (a P4 3.0GHZ and an AMD Athlon 64 3200), an old PC to TV converter box and an even older TV tuner card. The record player (Seeburg BMS1) audio output goes to the line in on PC#1. The graphics program on PC#1 goes through the PC to TV box to Vicor Music Corporation Video CD to the TV tuner card on PC#2 via an S-Video cable. Audio from PC#1 line out goes to line in on PC#2. Cyberlink Power Director 7 on PC#2 records the video and audio and produces the final video you see here. Copyright 1999 by Vicor Music Corporation
Six tunes from various 16-2/3 RPM Seeburg Industrial Background records dating from 1966 and 1968. Played on my ELAC Miracord 40A turntable connected to an early 1960s Fisher 400 tube tuner/amp and Sansui XP-S7 speakers. Copyright 1999-2000 by Vicor Music Corporation
