Frequent Questions

Can I pick up an item from any Branch?

Items in the Library of Things are located at eleven branches. Things will need to be picked up and returned to one of those branches during open hours. It does not need to be the same branch the Thing was picked up from.

Is same-day pick-up available?

Things that are listed as available at specific branches in the catalog may be checked out directly from that branch's available stock during open hours. This avoids the three day buffer period for shipping to another branch and facilitates same-day pick-up in most cases.

How many Things can I borrow at once?

You may have two Things checked out at a time. The lending period is up to 21 days on Things and 42 days on Book Club Bags. Checkouts may not be renewed.

Can anyone check out a Thing?

Anyone who has a Full-Service Library Card in good standing, is over 18 years old, can provide valid ID with current address, and has completed the lending agreement form may use the Library of Things catalog.
