Over the summer, I worked off-desk hours for my home library on campus creating resources for students. While doing so I needed some background noise that wasn’t music I’d want to sing-a-long with. In my search for ambient background noise I ran across this site and thought it was pretty cool, so today I’m sharing it with all of you. 

Getting started is easy! Just click on the sound you want to listen to. You can pick on the following sounds: coffee shop, rain, waves, fire, birds, night, train, fountain, white noise, and playground. I like the minimal background for each style. I also like that you can click on multiple sounds to create your own soundscape. My favorite combination is coffee shop + rain.

I found I liked to pull this up in a separate browser from the one I was working in. Just to keep it out of the way.
