You know you can check out books and movies from the library. Now, we’re letting you borrow things to assist with home improvement, spruce up a party, or help you record and preserve family memories! It’s all available in the Des Moines Public Library’s new Library of Things. The Library of Things is a collection of more than 50 items you’ll find useful in your everyday life.
How It Works
- You can borrow items from the Library of Things for up to one week, with up to two renewals if there are no holds on the item.
- When you place a hold on the item, it will be shipped from the Central Library to the library of your choosing, where it will be ready to be picked up in 1-2 business days.
- Some items do require additional supplies, such as batteries, so please read the description carefully before borrowing an item.
