Welcome to the Library of Things

How it works:

You can browse the inventory without joining, but if you want to borrow anything, this is how it works


  • Create your account
  • Choose pay-as-you go or pay-monthly supporter membership (which really helps us!)
  • Confirm your email address


  • Browse the inventory and choose what you want to borrow
  • Select the time & date that work for you


  • Visit the Library at any time during opening hours on your reservation date
  • If it's your first visit, please bring proof of identity and of your address.
  • A friendly volunteer will get your Thing for you.
  • Pay and you're ready to go.


  • Bring the Thing back with all its parts on the day it's due back – clean and ready for the next borrower
  • Notice any damages? These things happen. Please call or email us ASAP so we can warn the next borrower.

Finally, please let us know if you feel we're under- or over-charging for any Things. We appreciate your feedback to help us provide a great value service.
