Hey KPL patrons! This year’s Summer Reading theme is Libraries Rock. In support of this topic, staff members Dan Sullivan and Dina Peak created a Kirkwood Public Library (KPL) summer playlist!  The staff members thought it would be a rockin’ idea to add summer themed songs about beaches, sunshine, vacation and Hot Fun In the Summertime. Below is a compilation of music from Dan, Dina and the library staff. These songs can be accessed by checking out their albums on Hoopla or streamed through Spotify. Of course, most of the CD’s can also be checked out through KPL. Rock ‘n Roll with us and let us know your favorites!
