Library of Things

Welcome to our Library of Things! Have you ever wanted to try out a new hobby without investing in the needed equipment or supplies?  Or needed a special cake-pan or household gadget for a one-time need and wish there was someplace you could borrow those things from without buying it yourself? Luckily the Blackwater Regional Library “Library of Things” is here! From cake-pans to stud finders, we have you covered!

Access available items

A valid Blackwater Regional Library card in good standing is required to borrow from the Library of Things. Borrowers of Things must be 18 years old or older, and must sign a copy of the Library of Things Lending Agreement.


  • A Thing may be borrowed for 6 weeks and renewed one time unless another borrower is waiting.
  • Things should be returned in the same condition as when borrowed. Kitchen items and other things that have gotten dirty while borrowed should be cleaned before being returned. Patrons returning items that need to be cleaned will be assessed a $5.00 cleaning fee.
