Libraries Rock just isn’t the theme for Summer Reading, Capital Area District Libraries is actually living it.

CADL is doing a cool promotion with Common Ground and Marshall Music. About two years ago, CADL began its “Everything right here” campaign which encourages people to think of today’s library as a cost-efficient and convenient way to meet their entertainment and information needs. The song Right Here by local singer-songwriter, Taylor Taylor helped inspire the campaign and is used in some of the commercials.


Now through August 31, mid-Michigan bands and singers are invited to cover Taylor’s song for a chance to perform during next year’s Common Ground Music Festival. You can enter the contest by clicking here. The grand prize winner will also receive a $500 Marshall Music Gift Card and possibly be featured in a future CADL commercial. CADL is using this contest as a way to showcase local talent and create awareness of musical instruments now available through our “Library of Things” collection. The library has also created a local music collection.
