It's Ban(ne)d Book Week!

Literature and Music are all about playing one thing off against another... so we're motivated by a little play on words... In Music / CCM we always expand Banned Book Week ( to include music and musicians that have been challenged over the years. 

This year we've taken it a little further... in our title... Here are a few photos, come on upstairs to 2East and take a look ... read a book about a banned band, or listen to one of their challenged recordings from our collection.

Thanks go to Jennifer Meixelsperger and Sarah Reynolds for their inventive ideas and follow through!

 We have some bookmarks for you, too!


Check out a book!!

New Books Bulletin Board - Music AND ...

Music and musicians work inter-disciplinarilly (not sure that's a word... well it is now !). We always have.

Take a look at a few new books that show how...

(Much thanks to Eleanor Peterson & Brittany Nielson for the great work!)

Jazz iz... National Poetry Month

Virtually everyone knows that April is National Poetry Month. But did you know that it's also Jazz Appreciation Month ?

The Music & Curriculum Students have done a bang-up job of putting together a display that brings together the two and shows how interrelated they are. Browse the pictures here, but even better... stop by the 2nd Floor East Wing and take a look! Maybe check out a book and a couple of recordings to take with you.



Music... Words... Feel the Rhythm, Taste the Beat

(thanks to Sarah Reynolds & Jacqueline Brellenthin for the amazing bulletin board and to Jennifer Meixelsperger and Brittany Nielson for their creative and fun ideas for the cases!)

Dissonance in Music - so many meanings

Our 'new book' bulletin board is featuring musicians who created dissonance in some way, whether through the music they wrote or their place in the world. Stop by throughout the semester as we add new titles to the list.

If you know of something new that comes out, pass the information on to Rebecca, or to Eleanor Peterson, our Music Librarianship student who made this board.
