frill rva
This is so smart.

Launched last September, the Free Richmond Instrument Lending Library offers kids of Richmond Public Library cardholders the chance to borrow instruments to try out (for free). Stop by the Main Library this Saturday from 12-3 p.m. to see what’s available.

    Richmond youth ages 8-18 can check out instruments from the Girls Rock! collection for free – guitars, basses, keyboards, drumkits, and amplifiers – plus pick up instructional materials, learn how to set up the instrument at home, and check out the library’s holdings of sheet music and music instruction materials. You can have each item for a two-week period, with the option to renew for an additional two weeks. Instrument returns must take place during FRILL hours of operation, every other Saturday from noon-3pm at Richmond Public Library’s Main Branch.

    What you need to bring: A Richmond Public Library card, and a parent or guardian if you are under 18, to sign the FRILL release form. Consider how you will transport items home, as some of them are big and heavy!

    Our supplies are limited and will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
