Come in and borrow our new Musical Instruments

Calling all budding musicians to Blessington and Arklow libraries.We have just launched a musical instrument lending scheme. The new instruments will be available to rent by families or community music groups from Wednesday 4th July, providing an opportunity for young people to try out playing an instrument before making a financial commitment. This exciting project has been developed in collaboration between Wicklow County Council and Music Generation Wicklow and is intended to encourage young people to start playing an instrument.

For more information please download the the two documents at the bottom of this page - Rental Information Form & Rental Agreement Form.
