Index to approximately 600 songbooks owned by the Appleton Public Library. Only song titles are included in the index, but these may be searched by either phrase or keyword. You may also search by the title of the songbook. (See also Badgerlink Songbook Database)
This database is an index to over 150 songbooks owned by the Children's Services Section at the Appleton Public Library. To search for a particular song, use "search for song titles." To search for the title of a particular songbook, use "search for songbooks." This index will help you find a book that contains the words and music to a song, not a recording. On the results page, clicking on the book title will open a new window and connect you to the library catalog to tell you if the book is checked in or out. Please call the Family Readers' Advisory Desk at 832-6187 if you have questions about the Children's Songbook index or need help finding a song.
