Westminster Music Library is temporarily closed. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
Westminster Music Library is one of the largest public music libraries in the UK, holding a wide range of sheet music and books about music. The library was founded in 1946 with the music collections of music critic Edwin Evans and has historically been based within Victoria Library.
Due to essential building maintenance Westminster Music Library is currently closed, and is being relocated to Westminster Reference Library, where it will join Westminster's nationally recognised art and design and performing arts collections in the heart of the West End. The library is projected to reopen in Spring 2021.
Although the main part of our collection is not currently accessible, the orchestral performance sets are available to hire, and our online resources can be accessed 24/7. Please contact the Music Library for further information or any enquiries.
|Monday to Friday
We have online events for adults, and online activities for children and young people.
