Dallas Library now checking out ukuleles

DALLAS — Summerfest’s Hawaiian Luau theme has everyone thinking of the Islands, and the Dallas Library is no exception.

Just in time for the Hawaiian inspired event, the library is offering ukuleles for checkout, complete with a tuner and “how to play” instruction pamphlet. These kits are available for check-out to Dallas patrons only.

They will be checked out for three weeks with no renewals allowed on the kit. Library managers hope this is just the first instrument check-out program.

Dallas is working on adding other instruments in the near future.

Can’t get enough ukulele?

The library will also be hosting ukulele strum and sing-along events every first Wednesday of the month from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the library, located at 950 Main St., Dallas,

The musical get-together is on Aug. 3, and people with other instruments are welcome to attend.

It will be an informal group open to all ages and a good time to play and learn.
