The Best Day(s) are finally here! Call It What You Want but we’re calling Taylor Swift’s two-day visit in Swiftinnati one of the biggest concerts of the year. As all Swifties know, It’s Nice To Have A Friend, and the Cincinnati & Hamilton County Public Library is yours for all your pre-concert needs. Long Story Short, Dear Reader, when you think of going to The Eras Tour, I hope you’ll think of the Library.
Stream All of Taylor Swift’s Albums
From her debut “Taylor Swift” album to her latest record “Midnights,” all 12 of her albums are available to stream for free with a library card on Hoopla.
Want to practice singing along ahead of the show? There are loads of karaoke versions available to stream for free, too!
