More than 100 instruments free for teens to borrow at the Dublin City Libraries!
Girls Rock Dublin & Dublin City Libraries have teamed up to offer teenagers a brand new and FREE music gear loan service: the GRD Gear Library!
You can now borrow one of our instruments, amps, pedal effects and accessories just like a book.
Each loan lasts 3 weeks and can be renewed on the phone or by email.
This is the gear that Girls Rock Dublin use for their summer camps, workshops and events and they are excited to be sharing it with you.
The GRD Gear Library operates in Pearse Street Library (Dublin 2) and in Ballyfermot Library (Dublin 10).
