Library of Things
What is the Library of Things?
The Library of Things is a collection of nontraditional items that can be borrowed for one week. It supplements other items in our collection and supports a sharing economy that creates less waste. “Don’t buy – borrow!”
How do I borrow a Thing?
The Library of Things is open to everyone. If you’d like to check out an item, all you need is a CLAMS card in good standing. All things can be borrowed for one week; they cannot be requested for delivery or returned to alternate locations. Games are now available to request in our software (immediately below); a further list of Things is at the bottom of this page.
What Things are available?
Things that are not Games, and their availability, are still listed in CLAMS. They include:
- Sewing machine
- Trash grabber/reach tools
- Metal detector
- Trekking poles
- Kodak digital film scanner
- Portable CD player
- Bicycle lock
More Things are being added all the time!
