Many of our patrons are surprised to find out that KPL has a very nice selection of printed music. A brief examination of the 780s on the second floor will demonstrate the wide variety of vocal and instrumental music in our inventory. One series I think is very well done is known as the Decade Series, which, as the name implies, includes popular songs from the 1920s, 1930s, etc. These will work for voice, keyboard or piano, guitar, as well as for a variety of other instruments. A bonus is that they are all indexed in the library’s catalog record, making it much easier to find a particular song. Since KPL owns 15 of the volumes in this series, I have taken them home and played them on my keyboard and used them as trial copies to see whether I wanted to purchase them for myself at a store. Anyone needing songs for an anniversary, a high school reunion, a special birthday, or just for entertainment will find plenty of ideas here at KPL.
