Library of Things


What is it? The Library of Things is a collection of items you might not expect to find at a library, like museum passes, induction cooktops, microscopes, guitars, and more. Most of these items check out for three weeks, although there are some items that check out for only one week. After you are finished, please return them to an SBPL staff member. Do not use the book drop for returns (many of these items, like the musical instruments, will not fit in our book drops!).
