ABOUT MUSIC & MEDIA
The Music & Media Department at the Morris County Library is a unique resource for all who wish to indulge their passion for the performing arts. There are very few public libraries in the United States with strong circulating and reference collections related to the performing arts: on the East coast Boston Public, New York Public, Newark Public, Central Library in Philadelphia, and the Music & Media Department at the Morris County Library come to mind. We are very fortunate to have such an incredible resource available locally.
The circulating collection includes:
of music from all conceivable genres
The reference collection includes:
in various sheet music folios searchable by an electronic song index
In addition, the Music & Media Department circulates audio-visual hardware such as slide projectors, phonograph turntables, and equipment for the blind and handicapped (TTY machines, braillers, etc.). Our public space has a listening room with CD and cassette players as well as turntables in addition to a viewing room with a television connected to a DVD and VHS player. There is also a multimedia computer in the viewing room where patrons can access CD-ROMs as well as download music and video.
With an incredible
staff of qualified, performing arts librarians of various backgrounds
and an enormous collection to rival any research facility, it’s
no wonder that the Music & Media Department at the Morris County
Library is a favorite among patrons.
