Reserve a guitar from the Grandview Heights Public Library (GHPL) and start making music!
Acoustic guitars are now available to borrow from GHPL, thanks to a grant from the Grandview Heights/Marble Cliff Education Foundation.
The Foundation awarded $2,000 to GHPL for the lending program that provides four Yamaha acoustic guitars for patrons to check out and take home. The program focuses on music education through hands-on collaborative learning for all ages.
Each guitar checkout comes with a hardshell case, accessories, and instructional materials.
GHPL partnered with local business Guitar House Workshop to select the instruments and to provide routine maintenance.
Guitars are available and on display in Circulation on the second level of the library.
Guitars loan for 28 days with a GHPL card (3 renewals, if there are no other patron requests), are available only at GHPL (unavailable through our consortium), and must be returned to GHPL. Overdue fines are $1.25 per day.
GHPL was inspired to lend guitars by Licking County Library’s guitar and ukulele lending program.
