The Southborough Library is bringing back a popular program from the spring, with a seasonal twist.  They are offering a series of virtual ukulele lessons for tweens and teens. This time, participants will enjoy learning to play a few Halloween themed songs.

Southboough Library circulating ukuleles funded by SEFYou don’t need to own your own instrument to join the fun. A grant* funded several ukeleles for the Library to lend out. (Although, those who have their own are also welcome to join.)

The Library promotes the ukulele as an instrument that is fun and easy to play. After a short lesson, participants should be able to play a few songs. No experience necessary.

Patrons ages 8-18 are invited to join instructor Julie Stepanek over zoom for weekly group lessons in October. Stepanek will demonstrate the fundamentals, teaching how to tune, strum and read chords.

The free sessions will take place on Wednesdays from 4:00 – 5:30 pm, October 6-27. Registration is required by October 1st.

To borrow a ukulele, sign up through Recreation’s website here. If you have your own instrument and just need the zoom link, email Library Director Ryan Donovan at rdonovan@cwmars.org.

This program is supported by The Friends of the Southborough Library.

*The grant was provided by the former Southborough Education Foundation. Since then, the non-profit was merged into the Southborough Community Fund.
