New Sheet Music Loan Service

Some of you may be aware that the Guild holds a very substantial collection of sheet music for all voices for both adults and children. There are pieces in all genres and music for choirs and even a few for instruments.


It has been agreed that rather than these gathering dust in the store room we would offer them for loan to interested parties. This is something of an experiment to see if it is practical so we will start small and see how it goes. Please note that song books will not be available for loan and set pieces for the coming year can only be loaned if we have three or more copies.


Obviously, the collection is valuable and we would want to protect it. We have, therefore, decided to ask for a returnable deposit of £20 and a £3 administrative charge on each item.


If anyone would like to view the catalogue please contact the Secretary by email to manxguild@gmail.com. Should you then wish to borrow an item I will meet you at the store and book the item out to you in return for the charge.
