More than 100 instruments free for teens to borrow
at the Dublin 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.
This is the gear that we at Girls Rock Dublin use for our summer camps, workshops and events and we are excited to be sharing it with you. We hope it will give you as much joy as it's been giving us.
The GRD Gear Library operates in Pearse Street Library (Dublin 2), and in 2021 will launch in Ballyfermot Library too (Dublin 10).
How to Borrow

Open to teenagers (under 18 years) of all genders, you can view all the gear online and then collect in person at Pearse Street Library (or Ballyfermot Library) with your library card.

The GRD Gear Library would not be possible without the support of Dublin City Libraries, the instruments donated by kind GRD supporters who believe in what we do, and the generous funding awarded by Reverb.com charity program Reverb Gives and Music Network.
Special thanks to Earnie Ball for donating strings and accessories.
