Welcome to The Library Of Things!

What is a Library Of Things?

A place where you can:

  • Borrow things you need but don't own
  • Donate things you own but don't need
  • Meet people to share knowledge and skills with your community

Where is it based?

We have a central 'Sharing Hub' at:

Unit 5,

Riverside Shopping Centre,


SA61 2LJ

We also have the ability to deliver items to local areas, please click here to find out more.

How do I join? 

Either create your online member account by selecting 'Register' at the top of this page or pop in to see us and we will help you create your membership account. You need to be age 18 or over, have an email address, have a valid debit or credit card that you can link to your account when you sign up and agree to our terms and conditions. 

The first time you borrow an item, you will need to bring in photo ID e.g. either a driving licence or passport and utility bill. You only need to do this once! If you would like more information about borrowing, please email us.

Do I have to pay join?

If you're joining for personal use, there's no charge. If you're joining to borrow items for a community group or business, we'll ask for a small joining fee. 

How do I borrow an item?

  1. Join as a Member. You just need a valid debit or credit card and an email address.
  2. Reserve an Item. Choose the item you want to borrow. Select the best date and time for you. Pay for the duration you need the item. 
  3. Collect an Item. Collect the item from your selected borrowing location during opening hours. 
  4. Optional: Get involved! Attend one of our events or join as a volunteer to meet people in your            community.

Do I Have to Pay to Borrow an Item?

Yes, there is a small fee for borrowing which is detailed on all items within the categories on the left-hand side. The fee can be paid with money, time credits, volunteering time or skill sharing. 

We ensure that everyone will be able to borrow regardless of their situation so we have created a Concession membership for borrowers who might not otherwise be able to borrow with us because they are unemployed, receiving government support, on a low income or receiving the state pension. If your situation is not listed here but you would like to borrow, pop in to see us or drop us an email.
