Music

The traditional area of the curriculum associated with the library is English, for obvious reasons.

However, any area of the curriculum can help to raise the library’s profile and encourage daily use. Music is one of the obvious targets. Music is an extremely powerful medium and is eternally popular with young and old.

If you have the money (!), you could consider investing in music: classical and modern to suit the curriculum and current tastes. Both should coincide if your music department has entered the 21st Century. CDs are always popular, as are musical scores. Market research is advisable to avoid expensive mistakes; ask them what they want! (Staff and Pupils). Books about musicians are also popular.
