Borrowing ukuleles

  • Find ukuleles on display throughout the library and bring one of the tickets to the desk.
  • You can borrow ukuleles for 4 weeks and renew them twice.
  • Return ukuleles during library open hours at the Accounts Desk. Please don’t use the book drop as it will damage the instruments.
