HOW TO USE THE LIBRARY

Sharing has never been so easy. Why buy when you can borrow?

Your home is a place to fill with the things you use every day. For everything else, why not borrow? People who are in transition, who have less money, less storage space, or who just want less stuff in general, shouldn’t have to miss out on opportunities and experiences.

STEP BY STEP

Borrowing is convenient, safe and FREE! Start today with these easy steps.

Become a member

Start by creating an account on our website. Memberships cost a suggested $30 annual fee or as low as $0. All fees go back into the costs of running the Library. To activate your membership, stop by the Library in person to show a piece of photo ID.

Browse the inventory

Visit the website and use the search bar to find what you need, or browse using the “Category” or “Type” options. We currently have over 750 items in our inventory, and new items are being donated every day!

Borrow an item

Members can reserve items on our website, and non-members can reserve by emailing us. We’ll follow up and let you know when your reservation has been processed. Anyone is free to stop by the Library during operating hours to borrow any available items.

Use

The length of borrowing time is flexible, and if you still need the item after the due date, just let us know. Renewals are always accommodated as long as no one else has requested or reserved the item.

Return

That’s it! When you’re done with the item or when the due date arrives, simply drop it off for the next borrower to use. Items can be returned between 11am and 4pm Monday to Friday to staff at the Makerspace Saskatoon on Ave D S, or directly to Library of Things Volunteers Saturday 1-4pm.

Add some little pockets of joy in your life. Share what you have and find what you need!
