Guitar Lending

Interested in learning guitar but want to try it out first? Borrow a guitar from the library!

There are two types of guitars available, the Dreadnought and the Grand Auditorium , both designed right here in Kamloops at Riversong Guitars!
For the average player there is little difference between the two aside from size; the Dreadnought is slightly larger than the Grand Auditorium .

Guitar Lending


  • Borrowing a guitar is free to anyone who has a TNRL card in good standing.
  • The guitars have a six week loan period with 1 renewal.
  • Guitars are Limited to 1 guitar per patron at a time.
  •  You may return the guitar to any Thompson-Nicola Regional Library.
  • Please return the guitar to the Library’s Welcome Desk, not through the book drop.
