The Library of Things

The Library of Things is a collection of fun and useful non-book items that circulate to students and employees. An evolution of the library’s existing lending model, this collection expands the range of items that the library circulates beyond the boundaries of traditional library materials to meet the diverse needs of our campus community.

By lending these items via the library, we hope to encourage a sharing economy that can lead to more sustainability, less waste, and saving money. With this new collection, the library aims to support learning, creativity, community, and engagement. If you would like to suggest an item for the collection or you have an item you would like to donate, please contact us at
