Manitoba Post StaffNews

WINNIPEG – The Winnipeg Public Library has launched a new Instrument Lending Library Program at the Millennium Library.

The program, sponsored by Sun Life has donated more than 150 instruments cases and accessories that can be borrowed by the public with a library card.

Some of the instruments available are: guitars, mandolins, violins, portable keyboards, and various types of drums. Instruments must be checked out and returned at the Millennium Library only.

Sun Life Musical Instrument Lending Library programs have been launched in 11 libraries across Canada.

Beginning October 4, 2019, a musical instrument donation drive will commence to add to the collection so that more residents can have access to instruments. All new or gently used guitars, banjos, ukuleles, violins, drums and portable keyboards can be dropped off at Millennium Library or at Long & McQuade (1845 Pembina Hwy.), a Sun Life program partner.
