Friday: Did you know there is a FREE musical instrument library in Sacramento? @musiclandria also loans out sound equipment and was an invaluable resource at our last event.

Inspired by Berkeley’s Tool Library, founder Buddy Hale enrolled in CSU Sacramento’s Business Program to learn about Social Entrepreneurship. On his very first day at Sac State, he decided to start a nonprofit. The idea was simple, create Sacramento’s first library completely dedicated to musical instruments. He used every class assignment to build the library one step at a time, and by the time he graduated, MusicLandria had a solid foundation to grow from. -

To launch the project, Hale donated his entire life savings as well as his vast musical instrument collection. With the help of Rachel Freund, MusicLandria opened its doors out of a tiny apartment on 11th and S and began lending out musical instruments for free. -

Since then, MusicLandria has completed thousands of loans, signed up hundreds of members and expanded their catalog to include over 400 musical instruments. Sign up on their website to check out music instruments! Thank you Buddy, we love your story of generosity!! — view on Instagram
