Donate your musical instruments to the library this May!

Donate, Faites un don

This May, spring clean your home for a good cause: we are looking for your new or gently used instruments to add to our musical instrument lending library!


From May 4 to May 31, you can donate your instruments to the Main branch (120 Metcalfe Street) or the Nepean Centrepointe branch (101 Centrepointe Drive). 

Instruments cannot be accepted at any other branch.


Our wish list includes:

  • Guitars - acoustic bass, acoustic guitars (nylon or steel), mandolins, ukuleles, banjos, electric guitars and amp
  • Strings - Violins
  • Keyboards - Lightweight portable keyboards
  • Percussion - djembe, doumbek, bongo drums, bell set
  • Instrument cases made for any of the instruments on this list


Only instruments on this list will be accepted.


The instruments received will be added to the Sun Life Financial Musical Instrument Lending Library, and will enable even more library customers the joy of borrowing an instrument to create music.



Have you any use for an accordion?

Re: donations

Hi there,
At this time we are only accepting instruments from the list above.
