Making Music Kirby Collection
The Making Music Kirby Collection was launched in August 2011 thanks to a generous legacy from Alan Kirby, Making Music's first Chairman.
He was a leading figure in choral singing in Surrey and, together with his wife Ethel, was keen to ensure the continued success of choral singing in Surrey. The Kirby Collection remains with the overall collection at Ewell.
For more than a decade the collection was available to the public at a stand-alone library at Denbies Wine Estate, near Dorking.
SCC moved the library to Ewell in August 2018 but without its specialist staff and their knowledge - that essential added value they bring to the library.
NewSPAL are planning an exciting new future for the collection in premises more central to the County's population, and with online access not just to peruse the catalogue, but to book loans and pay for them, sure in the knowledge that they are available for the period you require.
