The Library of Things

The Library of Things is our collection of non-traditional items that can be checked out just like a book. So what is a non-traditional item? You may have seen our Summer Outdoor Collection, which has yard games, a bird watching kit, and a telescope. Or you may have taken home our bundt cake pan to try your hand at making a delicious treat. These are all examples of non-traditional items!

More and more libraries across the country are offering materials like these. Here at Brooks, we’re constantly thinking up ways we can expand our Library of Things. We’re always happy to hear suggestions, so if you have one, feel free to send us an email or chat with one of our staff members at the Circulation desk the next time you’re in.
