LIBRARY OF THINGS – Borrowing Beyond Books

Curtis Memorial Library has a large inventory of Things to borrow. These items can be browsed by category and description below or seen throughout our Nonfiction shelves. Oversize items can be fetched by staff. A listing of all kits is available in Minerva.

You may reserve Things for checkout just as you do a book. By checking out a Thing you agree to the Borrowing and Use GuidelinesAnyone over 18 may purchase a Curtis Memorial Library card and use this collection.

Let us know what else we should lend, or browse more of our community’s ideas at our registry. We are always looking for more items that are a good fit for our collection.
