Jazz Room

The Jazz Room is located in Pensacola Library and houses a curated selection of approximately 800 books, CDs and movies about the history, performance and culture of jazz in its many forms.  Other special features of the room include a listening station where patrons can sample a variety of jazz styles, music books with play-along CDs and jazz-related artwork donated by library users.

The completion of the Jazz Room was the final step in the 2011-2013 renovation and expansion of Pensacola Library and is the culmination of a long-standing partnership between the Jazz Society of Pensacola and West Florida Public Libraries.  

The installation of the Jazz Room was made possible by a generous donation from Dr. Ralph Knowles in memory of his wife, Janet.  Special thanks to Dr. Knowles, Dr. Rovena Hillsman and Ms. Cay Simpson for their donations of original art.
