    Default Ukes in Libraries

    If you subscribe to Ukulele Unlimited magazine (and why wouldn't you?) you can read an article about libraries lending ukuleles and hosting uke groups ("Check It Out: Ukes Are Circulating in Libraries," by Heidi Swedberg) The last section, "Grace period," tells the story of how my group got started - Catskill Ukulele Group.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    How common is it for libraries to lend ukuleles? How long can you keep them if you check them out? Or can you only use them in the library?

    I don't think my local library does this, but I admit that I mostly get digital books from the library these days, so I don't go there often.

    I heard about it by Heidi and Daniel on a segment of the Ooktown podcast., the LA Public Library is making a concerted effort to provide ukuleles. You should be able to find out about it online.

    In our area, most libraries have them. When newcomers attend our meetings, they sometimes borrow a uke for the night. I suppose the borrow time is the same as for a book - two weeks (?).

    By the middle of May, snow shouldn't be much of a problem.

    Good screen name.

    I find it interesting that a local library has a ukulele loaner plan. When one has a ukulele that they no longer, has anyone ever considered donating to their library?
