      Unfortunately we don’t have the space to accomodate full pianos, and they are very impractical to move should any wish to borrow one. http://www.mcadoopiano.ca/ may be able to help, or at least point you in the right direction?

    Hello Roger,

    I am sending you this message to confirm our conversation today.

    I am studying advertising and integrate marketing communications at St. Lawrence College.

    Hello Roger,

    I apologize if you received the first half of this message without much else to it… I accidentally hit the post comment button. Gotta love tablet key boards!

    As mentioned in our conversation earlier, I am studying advertising and marketing at St. Lawrence College. As part of my leadership and teamwork class, my partner and I would like to take on Joe’s M.I.L.L as our final project. We hope to help to promote and fundraise for the M.I.L.L by incorporating the skills we have gained so far and hopefully get some of our other classmates on board.

    I have already been in contact with Ricardo and he is aware that we are interested in the cause. I will speak with him to organize a time when we can meet to discuss this further.

    Thank you,

    Tanya Trombetta

    I was wondering if there was a tenor saxophone available to borrow? I like the sound but I feel like I should try it before I buy it.

      Hi Dustin,
      We do have a tenor saxophone, however it is quite popular. Give us a call,(613) 549-5637, and we will add you onto the reservation list for a tenor saxophone.

    Hi there,

    I was wondering if there is an alto sax available for borrowing, or if there’s currently a waiting list for the instrument.

    Thanks! :)

      We do have alto saxes available, however I do believe there is a bit of a waiting list for them. Give us a call and we can add you to the list.

    Hi! I was just wondering if you had percussion instruments or ukuleles available to borrow or if they are popular and you need to reserve them?

      Hi Lorri,

      We have all kinds of percussion instruments and ukuleles in our inventory. Give the library a call at 613-549-5637 or email at info@joesmill.org, and we can take a look at the current instruments in and put one to the side for you.

    I have various music for trumpet, coronet and piano. Can you use this, or do you know who might benefit?
