Encore Music Service

Encore Music Service is a partnership between the library services of Hull and North East Lincolnshire. The service supplies sets of vocal and orchestral music to groups and organisations within the partnership area and throughout the UK.

The service is one of the most comprehensive collections of printed music in the country, with circa 2,000 titles in the Vocal Score Collection and more than 800 titles in the Orchestral Collection.

Sets can be borrowed by choirs, orchestras, educational establishments, operatic societies and individuals for performance or study purposes.

If we don’t have the set you require and you live in Hull or North East Lincolnshire, we will attempt to obtain it for you from another library via the interlibrary loan system.

Loan periods

Loan periods are flexible up to a maximum period of 12 months, but formally agreed prior to commencement of the loan. Renewals may be made where the music is not required by another customer, although if the renewal extends the loan period beyond 12 months, a further charge equal to the current loan fee will apply.

Scores can be delivered free of charge to Cleethorpes, Immingham, Grimsby and Waltham libraries or you may collect your music from Hull Central Library.

Delivery by overnight courier to your chosen address can be arranged, but a charge will be made and a signature is required. Courier charges start at around £16.00 for up to 10kg.
