Musical instruments

Make your own sound

Where you're new to music or have been playing instruments all your life, we've got musical instruments and equipment for members to borrow.

Instruments and equipment to use at the library 

Our Green Square Library has a new collection of acoustic and electric guitars, keyboards and amplifiers for library members to borrow for free. Instruments and equipment can only be borrowed for use in the library, either in the music room or with headphones in the main library area.

Book online for the music room or staff can also help with bookings. When you make a music room booking you can select the instruments and equipment you want to borrow for use with the room. Hire fees apply to use the music room only.  

To use the instruments in the main library area no bookings are required. Please see staff in the library to borrow.

Instruments can be borrowed for up to 4 hours a day.

To borrow the instruments, you'll also need to leave identification with library staff, such as a driver's licence. Your identification will be given back to you when you return the instruments to staff. 

Ukuleles available to borrow 

Our collection of ukuleles is available to borrow and take home from both Kings Cross Library and Green Square Library

Library members can borrow 1 ukulele for up to 3 weeks at a time. 

Ukuleles can be reserved using the online catalogue however they need to be collected directly from library staff at the Green Square or Kings Cross branches. Ukuleles need to be returned to the branch from where they were borrowed and returned to a staff member.

Fees apply for lost or damaged items. Alternatively members can replace the lost or damaged item or part, with the exact item or model number which must be in new condition.
