A Library of Things works just like a library for books, but you borrow items such as:
- Homewares, like a sewing machine.
- Kitchen things, like a slow cooker
- Outdoor things, like a lawn mower
- Tools like a drill
The Library of Things is at the Jasper Activity Centre, and has more than 30 things to borrow.
You can borrow Things and return them when you’re done using them. It’s a great way to access items you only need once in a while, that are expensive, or hard to store.
Our goal is to help reduce waste and consumption through sharing. This program also makes things more accessible and affordable!
Library of Things key points:
- Borrowing an item and membership to the Library of Things is free.
- Residents of Jasper 18 years and older can rent things.
- Standard borrow time is 1 week.
How to borrow an item:
- Browse the Things that are available to rent in the rental list below, or check out our catalogue of Things in person at the Activity Centre Front Desk
- See a Clerk at the Activity Centre Front Desk and let them know what item you would like to check out. They will let you know if it’s available.
- Register for the Library of Things with the Clerk.
- Read and sign the waivers provided by the Clerk.
- Take the Thing home to use, and return it to the Activity Centre Clerk when you’re done with it. It’s that easy!
