Child playing guitar

Learn to play

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

For use at the library

Our Green Square Library has a collection of acoustic and electric guitars, keyboards and amplifiers for library members.

The collection and the music room are available to hire, fees apply.

Ukuleles available to borrow

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

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 the library team. The instruments need to be returned to a team member at the branch from which they were borrowed.

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 in new condition.
