To the Library!


Great news as of Mach 2021 The incubator at the Library is a success! Thank you to the 413 members who have borrowed 360 items and 425 consumables from the library, we also had 113 things you have donated!

Together you have saved over £11,045 in stuff that you may have purchased or hired.

We now look to secure funding to move the incubator to commercial premises and employ staff to manage the organisation. As the organisation cannot fund this directly yet, we need your help to secure its future. With your help and other organisations, we will continue supporting the community and prevent the need to buy things that we seldom use.

Covid-19 - borrow with confidence!

We are operating a fully social distanced pickup outside (undercover) this will also allow help with the use of an item, complete the joining pack for those who are borrowing for the first time, and to check ID’s where necessary.


As Seen on Channel 4!

The Library of Stuff was featured on Stephs Packed Lunch during a segment about borrowing instead of buying!

We sent them our record player to kit out a room with things you can borrow instead of buying.



Donate to the Library

The Library is still in the early stages and as such is not yet self-funding, while we look for ways to move this to a self-funding model we would appreciate any funding to help keep the library going.
