    That is strange. Try downloading at least one song to the iPad and see if the Library option appears. Also, check out that @ Connect tab. I have no idea what it is (I don't have it) but it sounds promising.

    This is what you see if you tap the connect button.

    Oh, yes, I forgot about the Connect feature. Thanks.

    I don't see it on mine. I wonder if it got removed with iOS 10, or some settings is hiding it. Not that I care much. I've never used the feature.

    You're welcome.

    It's on all my devices, including those on iOS 10.3 beta.

    Do have have any music downloaded on the iPad? If not, try downloading at least one. Hopefully that will force the iPad to create the library, if it's not already there.

    Ok, I'm out of good ideas, so I'll just bounce some random thoughts around and see if anything helps.

    1) I'm not sure what the difference is, but Library and My Music are pretty much the same menu. If you have a My Music tab, see if Home Sharing is showing up there.

    2) I did a little online searching, and found something about iTunes Steraming Music being disabled making the Library tab disapper if you don't have a local library. I can't find a setting like this, but I'm on iOS 10, so the setting may have disappeard or been changed.

    3) iTunes on the computer has a Restrictions tab in Preferences. There's a Shared Library checkbox. I don't know if this has any effect on Home shareing, but make sure it's unchecked just to be sure.

    Sorry. I'm out of ideas. If I think of anything else I'll come back with it.
