Aloha Rebecca Crown

In an attempt to diversity Dominican’s collection of music resources, an unseen rockin’ Robin Hood has stole from basements, attics and flea markets, and given to the Library. Several ukuleles, or semblances thereof, have mysteriously appeared in our stacks.

San strings, this first uke still puts its new owner at peace with its siesta scenes. Don’t ask her a hard question between 12:00 and 3:00 as she is usually asleep at her desk.


The second uke, complete with strings, was claimed by our resident musician. Little ditties such as “By the Light of the Silvery Moon,” “Home on the Range” and AC/DC’s “You Shook Me All Night Long” are heard coming from his office.


Hood upped the ante with the 3rd instrument, the Polkalele.


This bad boy sits proudly atop the desk of its new owner, who has been known to cut a mean rug whenever she hears accordion music.

Said owner has noticed that instruments appear some time in the middle of the month. But mid-August has come and gone without tiny bubbles. We have no other clues as to the identity of Hood or his motive.
