JACKSON COUNTY LIBRARY ADDS UKULELE LENDING PROGRAM
Medford, Oregon (September 13, 2018) – You can now borrow a ukulele using your Jackson County Library card. The new ukulele lending program started September 1, 2018. Thirty ukulele kits, including a soprano ukulele, pitch pipe tuner, and a beginner instruction booklet all in a gig-bag for easy carrying were sponsored by the Friends of the Medford Library.
The ukulele is one of the easiest instruments to learn to play. Library ukulele kits are available to check out for three weeks at time, with two possible renewals. The kits will live at the Medford Library, but cardholders in good standing may place a hold request through the catalog for a kit that they can pick up at their local branch. When the kit is due, they just return it to the desk of the library where they borrowed it.
The Medford Library will also have an instructive and fun play-together session called LUKEs (Library Ukes) on the second Sunday of each month from 2:30-3:30 p.m. The sessions are led by Barbara Meredith, Patty Devon, and Marlene Riegel of the Plaza Players. Bring a checked out ukulele or one you own and play with like-minded folk. Sheet music with uke chords and words (if you want to sing along) will be provided and fun is almost sure to be guaranteed. Refreshments will be provided.
For more information about ukuleles and LUKEs, call the Medford Branch Library at 541-774-8689.
