Sigma Alpha Iota (SAI) is a national organization that promotes interaction among those who share a commitment to music. The LSU Chapter, Sigma Phi, will hold its annual used music, book and recording sale in the School of Music Lobby on April 18-19, from 9 am-3 pm. Entitled, “Music Sale to Benefit YOUR Music Library,” the sale will be organized and staffed by active members of the LSU chapter, and sales will benefit LSU’s music library.

Local chapter chair Molly Brackins comments, “Through this sale we are hoping to not only clear up some space in the library and faculty offices, but to be able to present the music library with a nice financial contribution to better the resources available to all LSU students. We are also hoping that one man’s trash can become one man’s treasure while supporting a great cause.”

Interim Assistant Dean of the LSU Libraries and Head of Music Resources Lois Kuyper-Rushing enthusiastically supports the sale. “The SAI sale is a wonderful way for music materials to find new homes and for music students and faculty to obtain materials at a very low cost. As state funds have diminished, the profits from this sale have, over the years, provided new books and scores, new study tables and other needed amenities for music library users.”

Everyone is welcome and encouraged to shop at the SAI Sale. We hope to see you on April 18-19!

Sigrid Kelsey is the Director of Library Communications and Publications at the LSU Libraries.

This class is a research-based service-learning class offered in partnership with the Jazz & Heritage Foundation.
  • #TBT Our campus, c. 1939. How many buildings can you name? Hint: Many of these structures were named for legendary faculty members and administrators whose work is featured on our current agricultural history exhibition, "Cooperative Extension at LSU: Commemorating the Centennial of the Smith-Lever Act of 1914." Many of the same people are featured in our companion exhibit, "The Greater University," documenting LSU's move to its current location. .
