The New Song Library

The New Song Library is a unique song resource library that collects and preserves songs about people’s lives, hopes and struggles, and helps performers, teachers and community activists share these songs with a wide variety of audiences.

The New Song Library was started in 1974 by Johanna Halbeisen. The music comes from the lives and struggles of workers, women and men, elders and young people, gays and lesbians, other minorities and Third World people.
