The Richmond Public Library is creating a ukulele collection in memory of Linda Perron.

Perron was well-known throughout the city for her “dedication to family and friends, commitment to volunteerism and passion for grassroots music-making.”

The library has partnered with a local group of ukulele musicians who were seeking a way to create a legacy for Perron. The ukuleles will be available for library card holders to borrow. While the instruments vary in cost, a new one and its accessories costs about $300.

“Our group has experienced the many benefits of music and are devoted to creating new opportunities to share this with others,” says ukulele legacy project leader Donna Wilson. “With the passing of our beloved member and friend Linda, we want to contribute to a legacy project that will celebrate Linda’s playful presence and her commitment to inspire others on their own musical journey.”

The donation drive ends Oct. 22. People can visit www.yourlibrary.ca/ukuleledonation/ to donate.
