Lake Oswego residents are now able to borrow a variety of "things" from the Library. We are joining a growing number of libraries in providing community access to a “Library of Things” collection: an array of non-standard but useful items available for checkout, ranging from seasonal cake pans to sewing machines to VHS-to-DVD converters. Materials inspire life-long learning, encourage human connection, and promote sustainable communities. Rather than purchase a food dehydrator that a household might use only once per year, it can be borrowed seasonally from the Library. Before you purchase a small appliance based on reviews alone, why not try it out first? All you need is a library card to borrow from the collection. Don't have one? It's easy and free for residents of Clackamas, Washington and Multnomah counties to get one. Just call or visit the Library for details!
