Long before the invention of television and other electronic forms of entertainment, the piano was the primary form of entertainment in many homes.

The Historical Sheet Music Collection at the Milwaukee Public Library is comprised of tens of thousands of individual song sheets, mainly for piano and voice, and dating from the mid-1800’s through the 1950’s.  If you are interested in viewing materials from the Historical Sheet Music Collection which are available for reference use only, or if you are looking for a particular song not included in this index, please stop by or call the Art, Music & Recreation reference room at the Central Library at 414-286-3071.
