The Folk Society has a collection of instruments any member can borrow. For a deposit of $25 you can borrow an instrument for three months and see whether it's an instrument you'd like to pursue.
After that initial 3 months, you can keep it for another three months for a $25 fee (unless someone else has signed up to borrow it.)
If you want to make a donation to our lending library, we're always in the market for new strings, tuners, capos, etc. And instruments if you have a good beginner's model you're done with. We'll take good care of it and give you a tax deductible receipt.
