The Cooper Smith Music Library Collection (CSMLC) holds over 9,000 sets of choral octavos, vocal and instrumental jazz charts, musicals, ukulele arrangements, and string orchestra selections. It houses a large inventory of string instruments available for rent, two pianos, a computer work station, a synthesizer, and a recording studio. It is a district music library system, which saves money and advances the implementation of comprehensive music programs taught by music specialists in the city's schools and, by extension, the broader musical life of the community.
