KW Library of Things


The Kitchener-Waterloo Library of Things will be a space where you can borrow infrequently used items such as tools or camping equipment. We'll be open soon, but here are some reasons why local community members love us already...

Save money
By borrowing instead of purchasing items you use infrequently, you save your own money.
Save the environment
Reduce the resources you consume and the number of items you send to the landfill by sharing.
Support your community
Your membership fees provide inclusive employment opportunities in your own community.
