Ukulele checkout pro
Colfax Branch Library
Monday, Apr. 30, 5 p.m.

Ukuleles are now available for checkout from Whitman County Library thanks to a generous donation from The Ukulele Players of the Palouse (UPOP). As part of the new loan program, residents are invited to test drive the instruments on Monday, April 30 from 5-6 p.m. at the Colfax Branch. During the orientation, Scott Hallett, local ukulele instructor will demonstrate basic techniques for playing the instrument, how to use the tuner and how to follow the beginning instructional booklet that is included with each ukulele.


Besides the April 30th event, Scott will be available throughout the year to entertain and assist residents interested in the ukulele. He’ll perform in a number of library locations as part of the "Libraries Rock" summer reading program and later this fall, Scott will teach a Ukulele course for Community College’s ACT2 enrichment programming at the Colfax Library.


To request a Ukulele for checkout, contact any Whitman County Library Branch or call 509-397-4366. If you are interested in any of Scott Hallett’s classes or more information on the Ukulele Players of the Palouse, call (509) 288-2208.
