Missing something?

The Conservatory Library has a small lost and found shelf. If you are looking for your missing scarf, hat, glasses, music, or gloves, for example, ask at the Circulation Desk. We also seem to have lots of water bottles. Valuable items like wallets or cell phones are sometimes kept in the circulation office.
