Erins blog picThe BTS albums are finally here! A long overdue event, I am honored to say I have started what will hopefully blossom into a well stocked K-pop section at our library. Because the music industry of South Korea is becoming so popular worldwide, I feel it is imperative to include their music. And who knows, maybe this will start an influx of music from numerous other countries to be sold plentifully in American stores and greatly increase American libraries’ stock. For music, if nothing else, transcends language.


Incoming BTS albums

My name is Erin Bishop and I have been and am interning at the Oxford Public Library. It has been an amazing experience that was given to me by my school, and, of course, I need to leave my mark. During the two week period in which I am here, I will bring the two BTS albums in the Love Yourself series, Her and Tear, into the library. As BTS are becoming such a global sensation, I feel that these albums are a necessary addition to the library’s collection. I also believe that it will promote other libraries to order the albums as well as bring people from a wider area to our own library. This will also give people who have only heard of BTS in passing a chance to check out why exactly they are so popular, their music a key component in their large fan base. I will give an update when the BTS albums are available and hope others will share my enthusiasm for this addition. And hopefully it will pave the way for other k-pop albums to make appearances in libraries.
