Feeling musical but don’t feel like spending the big bucks on an instrument? Just head to your public library!
Instruments might not be the first thing you think of taking out on loan from your local library but starting this week, the Brooklyn Public Library System has begun a special initiative for those with a musical inclination.
According to Brooklyn Paper,
“The library system debuted the city’s first instrument lending program at Central Library on May 23, allowing members to choose between one of five noise makers — acoustic guitar, ukulele, violin, electronic keyboard, and practice drum pads — which can be taken home for two months at a time, and come with practice books, tuners, and other accessories to help borrowers start rockin’.”
The program is directed towards those 18 and over with an interest in a musical education. According to the Library website, a program for children is in the works. The initiative has been so popular that the waitlist for the keyboard has already extended well into next year!
