Sibley Music Library Tours

“Take a walking tour of Sibley Music Library, the third largest music library in the United States! A brief history of Sibley’s 117 years precedes a walk through the library’s three floors, ending at the Ruth T. Watanabe Special Collections and Archives, home to our manuscripts, early editions, and Gene Rodenberry’s handwritten lyrics to the theme from Star Trek.”
  –James Farrington, Sibley Director of Public Services
