Library of Things

Did you know you can borrow more than just books at the library? With the BPL Library of Things, patrons can use their library cards to borrow items ranging from guitars to kayaks. 

Lending rules:
 

  • The lending period for items is three weeks, with one renewal permitted, unless otherwise noted.

  • Items must be returned with all pieces accounted for and in good condition.

  • Users will be charged the full replacement cost for loss, theft, or damage to items they borrow (beyond normal wear and tear).

  • Items must be returned to a staff member at the front desk.


 

Our Library of Things is constantly growing. Check out what we have available!
