Why buy when you can borrow?
The Library of Things at the Ela Area Public Library is a service that offers a wide variety of items to check out, from GoPros to educational toys to fishing poles. Whether you want to try before you buy, borrow something you might only need once in a while, or explore a new skill or hobby, the Library of Things has something for you! Select a category below or just browse all the things.
For more information on borrowing, including how long items check out, restrictions, and more, please see our Library of Things spreadsheet.
If you would like to suggest a Thing to add to our Library, please recommend a purchase.
