What is it?

The Library of Things is a collection of non-traditional items available to DPLS patrons. These items were purchased not only to help with needs in our community, but also to offer our patrons unique new experiences.

How does it work?

Items from the Library of Things are available to checkout for 14 days by patrons with a current DPLS library card in good standing. Excluding mobile hotspots, holds can be placed by DPLS patrons only; no renewals are allowed on any item from the Library of Things. Items can be picked up at any of our three libraries.
