CAN YOU HELP US BUILD IT?
Why buy, when you can borrow? The BPL is building a Library of Things to lend to the public.
Doesn’t the BPL already lend “things?” Yes, but a “Library of Things” is a special collection of non-book items that you do not need often, maybe just once per year, that you might find too expensive to purchase for such infrequent use. We apply the basic principle of a book lending library to these useful items: Don’t buy it, borrow it!
WISH LIST for the BPL LIBRARY of THINGS
Instead of buying many items, we are asking you, members of our community, to donate items to our Library of Things Wish List.
Our Wish List gives you an idea of what the Library of Things could become. Take a look in your garage, basement, kitchen cabinets, or hobby room. What do you own that you simply do not use anymore? If it is on our Wish List, and in very good or like-new condition, let us know. Do you have something to donate that isn’t on our Wish List? Email us at SueBloomPL@gmail.com with the subject line “Library of Things” or call 570-784-0883 and ask to speak with Sue or Lydia.
Please, do not just drop something off at the Library. Our storage space is limited!
The Library reserves the right to donate or otherwise dispose of items that are donated in poor condition or not within the scope of the BPL’s Library of Things Collection Policy.
