Library of Things: The What, Why, and How of Lending Objects

Explore all aspects of hosting a Library of Things, including selecting, budgeting, cataloging, displaying, sustaining, and marketing.

Hey library workers, are you thinking of starting a Library of Things for your community? From tools to toys, cameras to kitchen appliances, fishing gear to musical instruments, and from blood pressure monitors to robots – you can do it! The presenters will talk about launching these collections for a small library and a large suburban children’s collection. They will highlight their experiences selecting, budgeting, cataloging, displaying, sustaining, and marketing their Library of Things. They will also share what has and hasn’t worked, and you’ll leave with strategies for making the right decisions for your community.

Presented by: Dania Souid, Young Adult Services Librarian, Baldwinsville Public Library (NY); and Lindsay Delaney, Freelance Librarian (OR)
