What is the Library of Things Junior?

The Library of Things (LoT) is an innovative collection of non-traditional library items that complement our mission to provide our patrons access to quality materials and services for their educational, informational, cultural and recreational needs. LoT Jr. includes items with a focus on Literacy, STEAM education and Sensory Needs of Children.

How Does it Work?

Adult cardholders can borrow these fun, practical, hands-on items to learn new skills, explore areas of interest, or help with everyday tasks. The loan period is two weeks for all Things. Things must be checked out and returned in-person—not placed in a library book drop. Some Things require the completion of a borrower’s agreement.
