How to play

Playing the ukulele is super fun! Before you start, you’ll need to tune the ukulele. Listed below are a few examples:

Transportation and storage instructions

To prevent the ukulele from getting scuffed, chipped, and bumped around, always transport the instrument in its carrying case. In fact, when you’re not playing the ukulele, it’s better to keep it in the case just to be safe!

Do not store the instrument in very cold or very hot environments. You must also keep it away from the following: direct sunlight, heaters or radiators and A/C units.

Do not leave the ukulele in a hot, humid car or outside on a snowy or wet ground. This kind of treatment could damage the sound of a guitar and warp the wooden components.

If bringing the ukulele inside from the cold, let it warm up to inside room temperature before playing. This will help ensure the best possible sound.

Care instructions

To wipe down the ukulele, ensure that you use a soft, dry, microfibre, lint-free cloth. This will help pick up any dust and/or oils that may have accumulated on the body, fingerboard, and strings.

Do not polish the body or oil the fingerboard - staff at the library will take care of those tasks!

Do not use any household or personal cleaning products on the ukulele, including but not limited to:

  • soap

  • hand sanitizer

  • liquid disinfectant

  • disinfecting wipes

  • multi-purpose cleaners

  • alcohol
