Vancouver Public Library (VPL) is proud to announce the expansion of the Sun Life Musical Instrument Lending Library. Through the increased support of Sun Life Financial, the collection of musical instruments available for Vancouver’s music lovers now features more than 320 instruments to explore and enjoy.
Announced at Vancouver Public Library’s Central Library, at an event attended by Grammy and Juno-Award winning Canadian music icon Sarah McLachlan, Sun Life Financial’s expanded support of the Musical Instrument Lending Library includes $140,000 to support the program and a contribution of 100 more musical instruments to the Library’s collection.
Since launching in 2016, the Sun Life Financial Musical Instrument Lending Library offered by Vancouver Public Library has been enormously popular, with wait lists for many of the instruments in the collection. The expansion will put more instruments, including guitars, ukuleles, violins, drums and portable keyboards, into the hands of VPL’s music loving patrons.
