The Illinois Music Educators Association has been accumulating music from District and All-State Festivals for many years. This music has been sorted, catalogued, and is being made available to IMEA members as a lending library. Click above to see the procedures involved in borrowing. If you are interested in participating in this program, please review the titles, composers, arrangers and publishers represented in the Library.  The Library holdings are available on the IMEA website as “pdf” files.  Call or email the IMEA State Office to confirm that the repertoire selected is currently available.  Then download, print, complete and submit (by mail or fax) the Music Library Application Form.
