Closing Notice: 
All W-TCPL locations will be closed on Saturday, July 4, for Independence Day.

The Warren-Trumbull County Public Library is transitioning to a new classification system. We hope that this classification of the music collection will offer a better browsing and borrowing experience for our customers.

On the new classification labels:

  • The genre will be listed first (i.e. Opera, Jazz, Country)
  • The artist's name will be listed second
  • The title of the work will be listed third

Music selections that are just for children will have a J (for juvenile) along with the genre.

The new adult genres are:

Ballet
Barbershop
Big Band
Bluegrass
Blues
Classical
Comedy
Country
Dance
Educational
Folk
Holiday (sub-divided by actual holiday)
Jazz
Latin
Musicals
New Age
Opera
Pop
Popular
R & B
Radio
Rap
Religious
Rock
Soundtrack
World (sub-divided by country)

The new children's genres are:

Classical
Comedy
Holiday
Popular
Soundtrack


The Alpha-Numeric System for Classification of Recordings (ANSCR) was previously used to organize the library's collection of music. It will remain in place until we fully integrate the new classification system.

The ANSCR is composed of categories into which all sound recordings are organized.
