Music has the power to move us all in different ways. It can cheer us up when we’re feeling down, help us relax, clear our minds, transport us to 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 stomp our feet, nod our heads, and in some cases even get up and dance! It is the power of music. That’s why the Johnson County Library is happy to offer online music resources, so you can enjoy music that moves you.
