Borrowing a Banjo

The Musical Instrument Lending Library is a collection of instruments that can be borrowed for free with a valid library card. The collection is located at the Millennium Library. Ask staff for assistance retrieving the instrument you want to borrow.

You can find out the availability of banjos as well as place one on hold by searching the library catalogue.
