Toronto library board to consider creating a Toronto Music Library

“With hundreds of thousands of archival recordings and millions of pages of notated scores, the Toronto Public Library’s music collection should sing volumes about this city. Instead, it sings like a caged bird. That’s according to Michael Foderick, chair of the Toronto Public Library Board and author of a motion that last year directed staff to report back on the viability of creating a Toronto Music Library to house the bulk of the library’s music-related collections and programming. The motion asked library staff to explore the possibility of centralizing and promoting the library’s audio, video and written music collections, including music-related literature, under one roof.” (via Toronto Star)
