OHS Friends of the
Library and Archives

charter-memberWe hope you will join or renew your mem­ber­ship to the Friends of the OHS Library and Archives, a group ded­i­cat­ed to the growth, sup­port, and use of our Soci­ety’s incom­pa­ra­ble book and archival collections.

Here are some rea­sons why our library and archives are important:


  • The Library and Archives in Vil­lano­va, Penn­syl­va­nia, con­tains the world’s largest col­lec­tion of print­ed mate­r­i­al on organs and organ building.
  • Organ builders, schol­ars and stu­dents rely on this col­lec­tion for their work and study.
  • The col­lec­tion is an inter­na­tion­al treasure.

The OHS Mission Statement

The Organ His­tor­i­cal Soci­ety cel­ebrates, pre­serves, and stud­ies the pipe organ in Amer­i­ca in all its his­toric styles, through re­search, edu­ca­tion, ad­vocacy, and music.
