Librarian Liz Strauss will be leading a beginners ukulele class at the Dover Public Library on Saturday, May 11th.

DOVER - The Dover Public Library invites patrons ages 8 through 18 and parents to learn how to play the ukulele at a special musical event.

The library will be hosting a program titled "You Can Ukulele" on Saturday, May 11th, beginning at 2pm. The beginner class will cover how to strum and hold the ukulele and how to play popular chords. Participants will then learn to play easy songs and will also leave the class with a list of resources to continue their ukulele practice. People can bring their own ukuleles or borrow one owned by the library. 

The program is funded by a 21st Century Afterschool Learning Grant with Dover High School. It is the first of a series of programs using the Library's 10 ukuleles. Future programs will include "Uke Can Rock," focusing on classic rock songs played on the ukulele and "A Very Merry Ukulele," focusing on Christmas and holiday songs. When not being used for a program, the library's ukuleles will be available upon request for in-library practicing. 

For more information or to register for the upcoming class, call 330-343-6123. The Dover Public Library is located at 525 N. Walnut St., across from Dover High School.
