Friends of the Library support the Lila Acheson Wallace Library — a comprehensive resource for the School’s performance and research needs. The collection includes more than 75,000 music performance and study scores, including scholarly editions of composers' collected works and other historical editions; 23,000 books on music, dance, drama, and general academic subjects; 25,000 sound recordings (LPs, compact discs, reel-to-reel, cassette, and DAT tapes), and 2,500 videos.
Juilliard’s library is the proud home of the Juilliard Manuscript Collection — one of the world’s greatest collections of autograph manuscripts, composer sketches, engraver proofs, and first editions. Complementing this extraordinary resource is the Peter Jay Sharp Special Collections, which include numerous rare printed editions, manuscripts, manuscript facsimiles, and archival collections — a rich resource for students, faculty, scholars, and the cultural community.
As a Friend of the Library, you support this extraordinary resource and enrich the education of aspiring, young performers. Your tax-deductible contribution, which many corporations will match, will help The Juilliard School remain at the forefront of performing arts education.
