Carver Memorial Library is happy to offer a Musical Instrument Lending Library for anyone wanting to learn or try out a new instrument. Currently we have an acoustic guitar, an electric guitar, a violin, a banjo, two mandolins and two ukuleles. Each instrument comes with a case and a tuner. To get started, contact the library to check availability. CML's Musical Instrument Lending Library was designed in partnership with The Maker's Guild of Maine, and the instruments were donated by the Old Time Music Players of Maine.
Who can sign out an instrument? Any adult patron with a current Carver borrower account in good standing can check out an instrument. Items are checked out for four weeks. A replacement fee may apply to lost or damaged items.
Can I donate an Instrument to the library? Absolutely, if you have instruments or instrument accessories in good condition you'd like to donate, please tell us more by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Instruments will be accepted in accordance with the library’s Gifts and Donations Policy.
Here are some types of instruments we accept: acoustic guitars, acoustic bass, banjos, ukuleles, violins, maracas, tambourines, steel drums, drum pads and drum pad sets, keyboards, concertinas, and similar instruments. We only accept portable instruments, and cannot accept wind instruments.
