The Share and Repair Network is delighted to launch our latest member focused video, Meet Music Broth’.

The video showcases our amazing member Music Broth, a musical instrument library operating out of Glasgow and Edinburgh, and servicing the whole of Scotland. In this member spotlight video, Founding Director, Jennifer O’Brien shares how Scotland’s loudest library got started and how it benefits its community today.

“People might not think of a library as a place to have instruments, but we’re doing it! We’ve got all kinds of instruments, pretty much everything you can think of. We take in instruments from donations, in any condition, all for sharing in the community. We fix them up, restore them, repair them and we get them out to people to bring joy.” Jennifer O’Brien, Founding Director.

The musical instrument library lends its vast array of instruments to people all over Scotland, with huge benefits for library members, who develop new skills and confidence to play with others, and even on stage.

Volunteers and staff are celebrated for keeping the organisation running alongside funding from the likes of Scottish Government and Creative Scotland.

Our series of videos can be found on the Circular Communities Scotland YouTube Channel, and aim to celebrate and showcase the amazing work happening on the ground in sharing and repairing across Scotland.

We are very proud to support and represent their work and look forward to releasing more materials elevating our membership’s work in future.
