Piano @ City Library

Play the piano but don't have access to one?
I found the piano when I had went to see the "Picture 1000 Words" exhibition on the second floor, which unfortunately finishes very soon on the 29 September.

The piano was sitting in the gallery space just beside the top of the stairs to the right.

It looked to be a beautiful piano that seemed as if it were on display, however when I went closer to read the small sign on top I realised that it was available to those who were accomplished pianists.

[ADVERT]There was also a second sign that make it very clear who was allowed to play:

"Note that a Level 5 Grade is required to play the piano in the library. If you are unsure of your level, please do not play the piano."

I can't play the piano but I think it would be magical to be browsing the library shelves with strains of classical music in the background.

The piano isn't available at all times and there is schedule to consult for those who wish to play.
