Media Advisory - Sun Life brings the joy of music to Prince Edward Island

Canada NewsWire

CHARLOTTETOWN, June 4, 2019 /CNW/ - Sun Life will inspire budding musicians in Prince Edward Island with the expansion of its Musical Instrument Lending Library program to four public libraries on the Island in Summerside, Charlottetown and Montague. JUNO Award-winning singer/songwriter and Summerside native, Catherine MacLellan, will be on hand to announce details of the program. 

The Sun Life Musical Instrument Lending Library program is increasing access to musical instruments in the Maritimes with the Prince Edward Island launch. This innovative, free program helps put musical instruments into the hands of more Canadians. Just like borrowing a book, residents with a valid library card can now borrow a variety of musical instruments.
