Ukulele lessons, small kitchen appliances available at Scappoose Public Library CHRISTINE MENGES firstname.lastname@example.org
Columbia County residents can now go to the Scappoose Public Library for more than just books. Thanks to two grants received in December from the Columbia County Cultural Coalition and the Oregon Public Library Innovation Fund, children can take free ukulele lessons every Mon-
day at 4:30 p.m. at the library, and, starting in the spring, all library patrons can benefit from a new library of things, namely small kitchen appliances to check out. Children can take part in the ukulele lessons regardless of their residence, and the library of things will be open to St. Helens residents as well as Scappoose residents because of a reciprocal agreement that the Scappoose
Public Library has with the St. Helens Public Library, Jeff Weiss, Scappoose Public Library Director said. The grant from the Columbia County Cultural Coalition totals $2,000 and funds the free ukulele lessons for children. While the library has always had ukulele lessons for adults, local parent Alexandra Collins wanted one for children too, and was able to reach out to Aaron Cantwell,
St. Helens local who plays in the kindie rock band, Micah and Me!, to start a children’s group in September of 2019. At that time, lessons cost $10 for children. Free lessons began this past Monday, Jan. 6, and will be held every Monday until the end of May. In addition to bringing the musical expertise Christine Menges / The Chronicle

to instruct children, Cantwell brings ukuleles for children to use for free while taking lessons. Jeff Weiss, Scappoose Public Library Director, said the lessons were a way to expand children’s programming. “Without a grant, we can’t afford to underwrite that expense, so the grant offered us to do lessons for free instead of for a fee,” Weiss said. According to Weiss, paid ukulele lessons for children have seen as many as 20 attendees. Their adult ukulele group usually has 15 to 20 participants. The Monday, Jan. 6 children’s lesson drew
News Advertiser a crowd of approximately 30 parents and children. Lessons end in May because the grant is enough to fund five months of lessons. However, Weiss said the library would like to keep the program ongoing with the help from business and community donations. While there are no specific plans yet to fundraise, Weiss said Collins would be approaching businesses to be sponsors after the grant runs out. Lessons cost the library $400 a month, and the library will have to raise $4,000 to continue the lessons for free from June till December. Even for five months, the classes will expand children’s programming for the library and help children build musical skills, Weiss said. “Developing music skills goes along with other activi-
ties and brain development,” Weiss said. The library also received a $13,000 grant from the Oregon Public Library Innovation Fund of the Oregon Community Foundation, which will be combined with the Scappoose Public Library’s Friends of the Library contribution of $2,000, for a total of $15,000. The grant will accomplish two goals: expand the existing kitchen inside the library meeting room and create a circulating library of small kitchen appliances to increase nutrition education opportunities and access to healthy foods, according to Weiss. The library meeting room is used daily, Weiss said, for various meetings and other community purposes. Its kitchen has a sink, and the grant will enable the

library to add a new fridge, oven, stove and a new range installed for the oven. Weiss said he is rebidding all the electrical work, and how many items will be in the library of things depends on how much the electric work would cost. Weiss is currently working on getting bids for the electrical work that needs to be done to install a fridge and an oven, for which there will be an award presentation on Jan. 16. Once final bids are in, the library will be able to get more appliances, which will determine the budget for everything else, Weiss said. As of now, the library has collected one appliance for their library of things, an air fryer, which will not be available for checkout until the spring. Other appliances will be added soon too, such as
Simple Direct Cremation $695 Simple Direct Burial $995 Traditional Funeral $2,965
an ice cream maker, a pasta crank, canning equipment, an insta-pot, a food dehydrator and maybe a sous-vide, according to Rachel Lunden, reference librarian. Scappoose Public Library staff will work on collecting and cataloging items before they are ready to be available. Lunden said the library of things was inspired in part by Hillsboro Brookwood Library’s similar program. To collect the items to be included in the library of things, Lunden researched by asking Hillsboro library staff which items were most popular. The air fryer came back as their most highly requested item. Weiss said the new appliances will be a way to increase nutrition education opportunities and access to healthy foods for the residents of Columbia County.

The program will accomplish this by working in conjunction with programs already in place, such as the food distribution program that happens on Tuesdays via the food bank. The library of things was also inspired by another program the library has, according to Weiss, which are STEAM kits that children can check out. Those kits began with a grant from the northwest educational hub, and include things like a telescope, microscope, robotics kits, art kits and design kits, and Weiss said they have been very popular. When the library of things program gets underway, Weiss predicts they will start checking each appliance out for a week and based on demand they may increase the circulation time.
