Ukuleles to Borrow
Bring your own, or borrow one of our ukuleles available for public use in the library. Each ukulele has an electronic tuner and instructional book. Library ukes include soprano, pineapple, concert, and tenor sizes. All ukuleles are in the same standard tuning, but have different tones based on size. Anyone is welcome to borrow any size, though those with petite hands may find the soprano and pineapple sizes more comfortable and those with larger hands may find the concert and tenor sizes more comfortable. For ukulele loans or more details about ukuleles, such as to see photos or learn about specifications, stop by the library and ask a staff member.
The hour-long music session is structured according to a theme, with songs pre-selected by staff members. Songs are selected based on copyright availability, as well as their popularity and appropriateness for the inter-generational public library setting. Themes and dates are listed above, and the next month’s song packet will be available at each session. Songs will also be projected on a screen during the session for ease of viewing. We are unable to distribute the songs electronically due to copyright restrictions.
Contact Laura Sperry in Local History or Heather Reedy in Circulation for more information, questions, or details about the Ukulele Circle.
