Library of Things

Library of Things

We love books at the library, but sometimes books alone don’t do the job. With generous funding from the Dr. James Elrod fund at the Hendricks County Community Foundation (HCCF), the library has purchased materials for a “Library of Things”. 

The Library of Things is a collection of items that are unconventional to libraries but may be of use to the community. These items can include kitchen appliances, tools, crafting supplies, outdoor games, board games, and a wide array of other items. These items are loanable to the community just like any other library material.


Checkout Information:

-Seven-day loan period
-$2/day fine
-Can renew one time
-Reserve by placing a hold online here.
-$5 fee if returned unwashed (for culinary items and some tools)

Some items are limited to patrons 18+. Patrons are required to read and sign the Library of Things agreement prior to checking out any items from the Library of Things.
