Library of Things
Back to The Directory

It’s a library, but not of books. Instead, it's for literally everything else. Why buy something you only need for one week? The Library of Things is a digital platform with physical self-serve kiosks where you can borrow items rather than buying them.

What we love

Borrow useful and joyful Things for your home, projects and adventures. Currently operating in Crystal Palace, you can pick up your Thing from Upper Norwood Library after reserving it online. Even better news: there will be two more sites opening up in London this summer!
