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.
