STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - Pennsylvanians wanting to get familiar with the now trendy ukulele can soon borrow one from the library.

The Centre Daily Times (https://bit.ly/1OpgSXE ) reports the small, four-stringed cousin of the guitar will be available at some Centre County libraries through an initiative of the Allegheny Ukulele Kollective. The Altoona-based ukulele club wants to eventually make the instruments available at 32 libraries in Blair, Bedford, Centre and Cambria counties.

The group’s co-director Mike Holzer librarians will get trained by the club on how to use the instrument so they can help patrons get started.

A number of librarians from Centre County had a lesson turn into a jam session on Sunday. They learned to strum and tune and ended up learning a few songs.

The ukulele kits will come with the instrument, a bag, a tuner and an instruction book.
