Library of Things offers a treasure box of useful and joyful Things available to borrow at affordable prices from community spaces. We are not a professional hire shop. 

We want to make borrowing fair, friendly and fun – without hidden catches and sneaky small print. 

That’s why it’s important that all our borrowers agree to these 5 simple rules of borrowing – to make borrowing a safe, enjoyable experience for everyone:

  1. Bring the Thing back clean. So it's ready for the next borrower to use.
  2. Bring the Thing back on time. So the next borrower isn't kept waiting.
  3. Learn to use the Things properly by reading our how-to guides (linked via on the item descriptions, or physically with the Thing), watching YouTube videos (browse our playlist) or asking a volunteer Host if there's one on shift.
  4. Tell us about any damages immediately so we know the Thing is safe for the next borrower. 
  5. Share your feedback, stories & ideas so we can keep improving Library of Things for future borrowers.
