Sheet Music Giveaway!

We’re clearing out all of the  duplicate sheet music that has been donated over the years.  The free bins are overflowing with old-timey songs of yesteryear for your singing and playing pleasure!

LP Alert

LP Alert! We just put out some great vinyl box sets. Including, but not limited to, some interesting square dancing sets- complete with instructional booklets! “Bow to your partner, Bow to your corner.”

LP Alert

If you have an old Victrola or Grafonola, you’re in luck, because we refilled with the Free Bins with some 78s this morning.  We also added some LPs, music magazines, and sheet music as well, so come take a look while the weather is still fine.

Christmas arrived early at the Music Library because we just put a WHOLE bunch of those highly coveted CDs in the Free Bins.  Stop by after class and see if there is anything in there just for you!

NaNoWriMo at the Library

Calling all writers!

If you’re participating in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) this November, or just need a quiet place to write, come to the 3rd floor of the library on Thursday, November 7th for a “Come Write In” event at the Music Library.

From 7 to 10 pm, we’ve reserved our largest table with its 48 (yes, that’s 48) power outlets for you and all of your portable electronic devices. We’ll also have coffee, tea, and a few light snacks to keep you energized throughout the evening.

NaNoWriMo is a movement of people who try to write a 50,000 word (or thereabouts) novel in 30 days, specifically during the month of November. Currently there are over 88,000 novelists participating this year. It started in 1999 in the San Francisco Bay area, and has since become a world-wide movement. (citation: History,

Some of the more famous novels that have been written during NaNoWriMo include Sara Gruen’s Water for Elephants and Erin Morgenstern’s The Night Circus.

LP Alert

It’s our first refill of the new semester! Highlights include: some fascinating Polish imports, several of Beethoven’s symphonies conducted by Toscanini, and some Herman’s Hermits vinyl for those who love British Invasion rock. And musicals. AND some jazz! There’s a little something for everyone.
