On July 11, 2018 at Alderney Gate Public Library, Halifax Public Libraries, Sun Life Financial, and our community members (including Joel Plaskett!) celebrated the beginning of a new musical venture.
Sun Life Financial donated 150 instruments to our Library collection in an effort to make the arts more accessible to our community.
Violins, guitars, ukuleles, keyboards, doumbeks, mandolins, banjos, and bongos in varying sizes are now available to be borrowed from all 14 Halifax Public Libraries branches. The collection also features a Tenor guitar donated by JUNO and East Coast Music Award-winning artist, Joel Plaskett.
Just like a book, instruments can be checked out with your library card and are loaned for three week periods.
Check out photos from the launch event below.
