The Library of Things is WFPL's collection of non-traditional materials. You can borrow a stand mixer, a metal detector, even a circular saw! Take our Things home to start projects you've been meaning to tackle, test out equipment before you invest in your own, or throw an outdoor movie viewing party.
You will need your library card number and password to make a reservation. You may also call the Circulation Department at 617-972-6431 to reserve or cancel Things.
Please note: Things may show as available on days WFPL is closed. Make sure to check that the library is open before coming to pick up your reserved item.
All borrowers must sign both the borrower’s agreement and the safety waiver before borrowing a Thing. Forms are available to print here from the website, or at the Main Circulation desk. WFPL will keep these forms on file and they will apply to all future borrowing.
