Anyone over 18 is welcome to join the Sydney Library of Things.

The Sydney Library of Things is membership based. We offer annual, 6 months and quarterly memberships, with the fees going to maintaining the library, tools, insurance and building the collection. You only pay for your membership, not for borrowing items! 

Annual | $85 ($60 Concession) 

Six monthly | $50 ($36 Concession)

Quarterly | $30  ($22 Concession)

Accepted concession cards are DVA, DSP, Aged Pension, Centrelink – please bring your card to your first borrowing.


How does it work?

You can browse the inventory online without creating an account. Once you have joined and paid your fees online, you will be able to easily reserve the items you wish to borrow and can then collect them during specific opening hours at one of our locations. 

You can borrow up to 5 items for a loan period of 2 weeks. Items can be renewed for a further 2 weeks, if they haven’t been reserved by others. 

How do I join and start borrowing?

  1. Choose your membership type
  2. Sign up online – it’s easy and secure
  3. Pay your annual, 6 monthly or quarterly fee
  4. Agree to the borrowing terms and conditions (see below)
  5. Get ready to start borrowing

Return and Repeat

At the end of your loan period bring your borrowed items back in a clean and tidy condition to the library during opening hours. Returning on time for a better experience for all members, and you will avoid potential late fees. Simple as that and now you’re ready to borrow again.

Are you ready to join the Sydney Library of Things and start borrowing tools and gear? Yes? Great to hear and welcome to the sharing economy. JOIN NOW and we look forward to meeting you.
