The Library of Things


What is the Library of Things?

The Library of Things is a collection of non-traditional materials including gadgets, tools, games, kits, electronics, and more — all available to check out for free with a library card. Need something for a one-time project or want to try before you buy? Check it out from the Library of Things! The Montclair Public Library plans to launch its Library of Things in the first half of 2023.
