The Hendersonville Public Library is hoping to find someone that will donate a baby grand or grand piano to the facility.
With Covid-19 they have found how music helps keep us together even when we must be apart.
“The library is the gathering place in Hendersonville,” Library Director Diane Johnson said. “It is the place to come and read, attend a workshop to learn, attend one of many programs for our youth, meet up with friends for a book club meeting, crochet or knit, attend a painting class or simply relax and be entertained by a local artist.
Through the Arts Alive program, the library has featured the harp society, a dulcimer group, and several students and teachers from local music academies.
“Music has a way of bringing us hope, it can inspire a child or an adult to try something new and learn to play an instrument or simply bring joy to a person that day,” Johnson said.
With the gift of a grand piano library staff is looking to grow the program more and more each year. If you have a grand piano that you might want to donate please send an email to HPL@sumnercountytn.gov with your contact information so we may contact you.
