Songbook Collection

The Slayton Public Library houses the Plum Creek Library's songbook collection of over 400 songbooks. This project began in 1979 with grant monies administered through the Plum Creek Library System and the collection continues to expand. It now includes music for Christmas and other holidays, weddings, singing and dancing games and other music books for children, country western, hymns and other sacred music, popular songs, all time favorites, rock & roll, big bands, national and patriotic, spirituals, folk music, songs from operettas and complete Broadway musicals. The library staff maintains a title index to all songs in the collection, now numbering over 15,000 unique titles. A bibliography of the songbooks in the collection is available at each Plum Creek library and all books are available through interlibrary loan.
