Acclaimed music specialists from Les Délices will demonstrate their unique period instruments and discuss their working process in a series of library workshops presented by ORMACO.

How can we know what music from 400 or 600 years ago sounded like? What clues do we have or tools can we use to make that music come alive today? Join us as we learn about early string and wind instruments, introduce musical notation in Medieval manuscripts and early printed books, and consider the historical role of music and musicians in society.

About the branch

If you've found the historic Goodyear sign at the corner of East Market Street and Goodyear Boulevard, you've arrived at the Goodyear Branch Library. The library honors its past with its two 1939 fireplaces, cozy window seats, and artwork by local artists celebrating flight, motion, and the community's aeronautic roots. The library serves its customers very much in the present, with computers and computer classes, WiFi, scanning and faxing, engaging programming for all ages, and a collection of books, movies, and music that is sure to appeal to a great variety of reading, viewing, and listening tastes.

The Goodyear Branch Library is a community gathering place for local non-profit organizations and Ward Council meetings. Goodyear Branch staff can be found out and about at local events and in preschool, elementary, middle, and high schools bringing news of library events and sharing story and library how-to. With redevelopment in the community's horizon, Goodyear Branch Library remains a community anchor, continuing the tradition of responsive service to all.
