Girls Rock Dublin Gear Library Launching on Culture Night

This Culture Night marks the beginning of a fantastic opportunity for teenagers to borrow a musical instrument from Dublin City Libraries.

Dublin City Libraries and Girls Rock Dublin are proud to present “GRD Gear Library”, the gear loan service designed for teenagers under 18 and launching on Culture Night with “Instrument Carousel”.

On 20 September at 6pm 16 teenagers will take over Pearse Street Library in a fun and loud experiment involving electric guitars, basses, synths, keyboards ukulele, glockenspiel, pedal effects and drums.

By moving through different rooms and engaging with GRD coaches, participants will learn a song on each instrument, and finish by performing the song together.

Open to teenagers of all genders. Booking essential: ei.yticnilbud@yrarbilteertsesraep

From Culture Night any teenager who is a member of Dublin City Libraries can borrow their preferred instrument for three weeks. All you need is your library card! Joining is easy https://lgma.iii.com/selfreg.

The GRD Gear Library is a collection of instruments, amplifiers and musical accessories that Girls Rock Dublin use for their summer camp and events and are now making available through Dublin City Libraries all year round. Take a look at the instrument gallery at www.girlsrockdublin.com/gear-library then call into Pearse Street library and borrow what you need!

The collection is made up of donated gear from people in the community who value the work of Girls Rock Dublin and from purchases made from funding received with thanks to Reverb.com. The library is an ongoing project and we welcome donations of gear, see www.girlsrockdublin.com.
