Collage of construction plans, stages and finished renovation of the music library

Celebrate with us the transformation of the Howard B. Waltz Music Library! The celebration will kick off with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 3 p.m., Tuesday, January 23.

While the Music Library re-opened on August 28, additional furniture continued to arrive during the fall, and final touches recently finished. Our renovation makes more efficient use of space in staff areas, while creating more group study rooms and updating the overall look of the library. Collaborative group study spaces have been the most requested library feature students have identified in our surveys over the last few years. Last spring our new student group study room was a great success, and we’re excited to offer even more study options with this renovation.

The Music Library is one of the five University Libraries at CU Boulder. It houses one of the largest and most important music research collections between Chicago and Los Angeles. The collection includes scores, recordings, books, periodicals and sheet music. The Music Library serves the students, faculty and staff of the College of Music and the campus at large, as well as the community and visiting researchers and scholars.
