The Lewis Music Library originally functioned as a music lounge, but evolved into a music library. It has 39,000 music scores and 29,000 recordings. An original Canon was written for the library by MIT music professor John Harbison in honor of the 1996 renovation work. It adorns the glass panels surrounding the second floor of the library (featured in this photo).

"Jazz, it’s always been a huge part of my life, and before I came to MIT I thought I was giving it up, and that I was just going to devote my life to science, and I was shocked when I came here that it was actually very much the opposite." - Peter Godart ‘15, Mechanical Engineering
