Library of Things
Borrow the unexpected from the Bixby’s Library of Things!
The Library of Things is a collection of non-traditional items, from tools to tech to craft supplies, available to Bixby Library cardholders to borrow for free. This collection allows community members access to things they may only need once, are cost-prohibitive, or do not have the space to store, with the effect of reducing consumer waste and promoting sustainability. Why buy when you can borrow? The initial purchases for the Library of Things collection were made possible thanks to grant funding from the VT Department of Libraries.
