Keeping in mind the health and safety of our community, all in-person events at C4NM are canceled until further notice. However, our staff is still available by email, and all events are now hosted online. From our blog: Resources for Artists During the COVID-19 Outbreak
During these extraordinary times, donations are critically important to the continued survival of arts organizations.


The C4NM Library holds over 400 new music titles. The collection focuses primarily on books, from key texts by John Cage and Derek Bailey, to obscure volumes on Dutch jazz and folk songs of the Caribbean. Members, staff, and volunteers of the Center may access library materials during regular business hours.

Preview some our available titles below, or view the entire catalog. Please note that Special Collections items may be available for onsite perusal only.
