New direction for 2024

Since 2017, Hennepin County Library has been building its collection of diverse local music through an annual call for submissions.

We will be taking a pause on submissions for MNspin in 2024 as we evaluate music resources at Hennepin County Library. No new music will be added in 2024. You may contact with questions.
