Library of Things is a place where you can borrow useful Things for your home, projects and adventures. 

Find out why borrowing is better than buying:

  • it’s more affordable
  • cuts down on clutter
  • beats next-day delivery
  • meet your neighbours, get involved in your community, or even learn a new skill that could change your outlook on life.
  • sharing the Things you won't use often is a simple action we can take to live more sustainably so it's kinder to your planet.

So how do I join the Library of Things

It takes 3 easy steps:

Step 1: Join and reserve
Browse the Things online and make a reservation to borrow.

Step 2: Borrow and return
Collect your Thing. Use it. Then return it when you’re done.

Step 3: Track your impact
See how much waste you’ve saved from landfill by borrowing instead of buying.
