Maidenhead’s “Library of Things” Why buy, when you can borrow?

We’re currently building our team, our approach and our ‘operational model’: we will be ready to tell you a lot more about our ‘Library of Things’ very soon: please bookmark this page for all updates.

What’s it all about: Need to fix stuff or make things happen but don’t have the tools you need? Come to the Library and borrow our useful Things for your home, projects and adventures. Affordable. Convenient. Kinder to the planet. Items often borrowed in other libraries include: instruments, camping equipment, air fryer (to try it out), etc.

How it works: We’re currently finessing our framework of operations. It will include things like: purpose, membership, fees, borrowing process, returning process and other policies. It’s still in draft format and we would be in a position to share it in a couple of weeks.

We’ll soon have a list of what is available to borrow, and will publish on this link here.

What next: Feel free to come to the Hub and ask about more, or leave a comment below for questions or ideas you may have. and after all – Why buy, when you can borrow?

  1. A great idea.
    We are in the process of setting up the Windsor Repair Cafe to also address the Eco theme. Fixing items that might otherwise end up in landfill and save people money.

    Just wondering if there is mileage in somehow working together?

  2. Hi – Can you please let me know when and where the Windsor Repair Cafe will start and be at? I have heard it will be at Windsor Library? Kind regards, Sandra Diane Edwards. 🌈
