Sixth Annual Open Archives Tour:
Adventures in Gastronomy
Lewis Music Library (14E-109)
The Lewis Music Library will dig into its collection to uncover musical compositions written about food. We will listen to a wide variety of music from the 18th century to the present. There will also be a display of music scores that feature culinary delights.
The Music Library originally functioned as a music lounge when it opened in the Hayden Building (Building 14) in 1951. Over the years, this space evolved into a music library. The library was totally renovated in October 1996 when it was renamed the Rosalind Denny Lewis Music Library. The library acquires materials that support the music curriculum and serve the reference, research, and recreational needs of the MIT community.
