Enjoy Music in the Libraries

On Tuesdays between now and the end of the Spring semester, we are looking forward to several performances in the Central Libraries by student groups from the School of Music.

Join us today (April 2) at 11:30 for the Debussy Trio, a soothing combination of flute, viola, and harp.  They will perform in the Albritton Foyer of the Moody building, behind Starbucks.

Next Tuesday at the same time, during Diadeloso, look and listen for a brass quintet playing outside at the entrance to the Moody building.  There will be more performances to come, so stay tuned for more details.

World War I Music on Exhibit

Our current exhibit looks back to World War I, which ended 100 years ago.  From the Spencer Collection of American Sheet Music, we have some of the most popular songs sung by soldiers and sailors.  From the Texas Collection, we also have printed lyrics and photographs from Waco and nearby Camp MacArthur.

Crouch Library History on View

Our current exhibit looks back at the early years of the Crouch Fine Arts Library.  This is part of the 50th anniversary celebration of the Moody Memorial Library Building, which opened in the fall of 1968.

The exhibit features the earliest architectural sketches for the Music Library, as it was then known.  Articles, photos, and other memorabilia remind us just how very different libraries and music listening were then compared with today.

This exhibit will run through the month of September.

Artist Books On Exhibit

The current exhibit in the Crouch Fine Arts Library, Shining Lights in the Book Arts, features works by five recent Baylor graduates: AliAnn Rushing Attilio, Brianna Greenwell, Jillian Shaw, Caitlin Warren, and Samira Xie.  Each of their works explores the artist book format in a unique and personal way.  They were created as part of a class in the Department of Art, then subsequently added to the Baylor Libraries’ permanent collection of around 1,000 artist books.

For more information about the Book Arts Collection, see the Special Collections pages of the Crouch Fine Arts Library website.  Items not on exhibit are available for viewing by appointment.
