Musical Instrument Lending Library

ANNOUNCEMENT! We'd be closing on Friday 24th Feb. 2022 due to the snowstorm.




Coming soon!

We are excited to open a Musical Instrument Lending Library (MILL) in North Grenville. Keep an eye on this page for updates as we get closer to opening day.

FAQs

What is a Musical Instrument Lending Library (MILL)?

A Musical Instrument Lending Library (MILL) is exactly the same as a typical library, but instead of lending books, we lend musical instruments!

MILLs provides musical instruments on loan to members, especially children and youth, in order to support accessible music education and build life skills through the love and practice of music. There are many MILLs in Ontario and many of them are associated with public libraries.

How can I borrow instruments from the MILL?

Anyone with a North Grenville Public Library card in good standing can borrow instruments from the Musical Instrument Lending Library.

Don’t have a library card? You can sign up here.

How much does it cost to borrow instruments from the MILL?

It’s free!

Seriously.

Although there are fees for long overdue instruments, so please be sure to return your instrument on or before its due date.

Where is the MILL?

The Musical Instrument Lending Library is not open yet – we are aiming to open in early August.

Keep an eye on this website and on our socials to find out more about where the MILL will be, when it will be open, and what instruments we will have to lend.

Can I donate to the MILL?

We are not currently accepting donations of instruments but we will be accepting select instruments soon. Please check back here for our instrument wishlist when it becomes available.

If you wish to make a financial donation to help support the MILL (thank you!), you may do so on our CanadaHelps Page.

I'd like to get involved with the MILL. How can I help?

We welcome volunteers and donors to support the MILL. Thank you!

To volunteer, please complete our Volunteer Application and return it to the Library (in-person or via email: info@ngpl.ca).

We will be posting our wishlist for musical instruments later this spring. Please check back in June for this list. We are not able to accept musical instrument donations at this time.
