Donate items

A library of things doesn’t exist without ‘things’….. so if you have some good quality, new or gently used equipment taking up space, we’d love to give it a home. Please go to our donations form to let us know what you have. You’ll need to send photos so you might like to take those before you complete the form.

One of the lovely things about libraries of things, is that because they’re created by donations from the community, each one is unique.Items do need to be donated to the library, rather than lent.

They’ll be lovingly cared for and available to all library members for borrowing. All items need to be clean and in good usable condition.

If donating a battery-powered tool, we ask that you supply at least one working battery and the charger. We also appreciate consumerable materials for any of the items (eg. sanding belts, nails for nail guns, screws etc).

PLEASE NOTE: we cannot take every item and we reserve the right to turn away, redistribute or sell anything we cannot use, easily repair or store easily.
