Obtaining and Using Music

An initial supply of hymnbooks is provided to new meetinghouses. Additional hymnbooks, choral music, and other music may be purchased with stake or ward budget funds. Priesthood leaders may invite stake and ward music chairmen to submit annual budgets for this music. Music that is purchased with budget funds is usually kept in the meetinghouse library and belongs to all units that share the library. The stake or ward music chairman may help librarians create an index of this music. (To see a list of some of the music materials produced by the Church, visit the Church Music website.)
