From a Music Room to the Media Library

In the summer of 1974. – on the occasion of the Book Week – Árpád Balázs, composer opened the Music Room of the county library, which was very popular among young people. Besides listening to music and lending discs, this special collection provided a series of events as well.

Live music had always been attractive to the public. The Classical Music Club, hosted by Hotel Pelikán, used to have illustrious guests such as Előd Juhász, Sándor Szokolay, Emil Petrovics. Later the series of events called the Garden of Old Music, the Composer and his Audience and the Music Historian and his Audience were awaiting the music lovers of Szolnok.

In 1991 the Music Department moved above the Children’s Department in the building of the Workers’ Militia (Tisza Antal str.), where new types of documents, VHS and CDs were added to its collection.

Since 1997, the music collection has been located on the 1st floor (Arts), in a sepatare space.
