The NFA Library

The NFA Music Library Collection is located at the University of Arizona Fine Arts Library in Tucson, Arizona. In 1974, the library started with approximately 1000 items. With generous donations, and music from the NFA Newly Published music competition, the collection has grown to over 15,000 scores. This large library includes special collections of music that have been donated by flutists throughout the years. These collections hold both rare editions and out-of-print scores.

Scores from the NFA Library may be circulated to NFA members within the U.S. and Canada and to people enrolled in or employed by the University of Arizona.

8/25/23 Update: In the Summer of 2023, the NFA Library at the University of Arizona relocated its collection to a new building. This move resulted in a processing delay for orders received during the move. This move is now complete, and we will begin processing new submissions immediately.
