Girls Rock Dublin to launch ‘Gear Library’ on Culture Night

Girls Rock Dublin and Dublin City Libraries are collaborating on the new GRD Gear Library which will launch this Friday at the Pearse Street Library as part of Culture Night 2019.

The gear loan service is designed for teenagers under 18 of all genders and will begin at 6 pm in the Pearse Street Library this Friday, September 20th (Culture Night 2019) with a “instrument carousel” 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. The Culture Night event can be booked via pearsestreetlibrary@dublincity.ieĀ 

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.

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.
