Library of Things (LoT)

City of Stirling Libraries strives to be responsive to community needs and interests. In recent years, the notion of a sharing economy has inspired public libraries to develop non-traditional collections of items for community access. A public Library of Things (LoT) provides access to these items - or “Things”. 

Things are considered and acquired in a variety of areas: 

  • Art and craft 
  • Kitchen and baking supplies 
  • Technology 
  • Health and wellbeing 
  • Musical instruments 
  • Toys and games 
  • Home improvement 
  • Outdoor recreation 
  • Home and garden.

Browse the catalogue of "things" on the website or in your library app.
