Library Of Things

Borrow, Don’t Buy! Interested in buying an item but, want to try it out first? If we have it in our Library Of Things,  you can try it out!

The Library of Things are available for check out again. Items can now be checked out by any library in the SWAN consortium by adults. They have a new home in the Public Services department in front of the non-fiction books. Take the case and item to the Public Services Desk to be checked, and then you can check it out at the Customer Service (Front) Desk. If the item is not on the shelf, the staff member at the Public Services Desk will grab the item for you, check that everything is there and then you can check it out at the Customer Service Desk. If have any questions, contact the Public Services Desk by email at or call at 708-748-4431.
