We Have an After-Hours BOOKDROP!

We have installed a bookdrop to make item returns more convenient for our borrowers.  It is located inside the music building (which is open until midnight).  You'll see this metal bookdrop embedded in the wall directly to the right of the windows at the library's entrance.

Please help us out and:

  • Return Schneider Music Library items only.  (Alkek items should be returned by the borrower directly to Alkek.)
  • Please, if you are returning delicate items (cds, vinyl, etc), do so as gently as possible, or else wait until the library is open.  Scores/books should be inserted before audio-visual materials.  Thank you.

Quietly Humming Along...

We welcome you to visit the Schneider Music Library and stay awhile!  It's a great place to study, discover new music, and compose an email (or a symphony). 

We strive to be a place of quiet reflection in the midst of a bustling school of music.  Please help us maintain this ideal, for the benefit of all!

Thank you for visiting our website.  Please contact us with any suggestions or questions.
