The Library of Things at Highland Public Library

The Library of Things

The Library of Things is a new collection of non-traditional library items available to patrons to check out with your library card. We are an institution that supports lifelong learning for all.

No matter what your interests are, you will discover something new for yourself or your family in the areas of S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and everything from cooking and baking to crafts.

Check this list often to see what we have added to our library. You may check out an item for 3 weeks. All items must be picked up and dropped off at The Highland Public Library.

Library of Things Donations

The Library of Things is not a new concept. In a world where sustainabilty is a key issue, we focus on consumption and waste.  The try before you buy concept also helps families be more economical. 

We want to make use of unwanted "stuff" that will help benefit the community.
