What is the Library of Things?

Library of Things is a collection of items for loan that expands the boundaries of traditionally defined library materials. A natural evolution of the Library’s existing lending model, this collection supplements the Library’s approach to meeting the needs of our diverse and growing community.  Sharing, conservation of resources, and the idea that you don’t have to have everything you need in your home are key to the idea of a central collection that everyone can use. The collection also offers an opportunity to “try before you buy,” to save money, and to test out something you might not have come across otherwise.

UDPL previously called this our “Circulating Technology” collection.
