KW Library of Things

About

The KW Library of Things is a space where you can borrow infrequently used items such as tools or camping equipment.

Come by on our first official day open, February 24th between 9am and 1pm, to check out our inventory, talk to the founders, and sign up for a membership. At this time, we are only able to accept cash or cheque for memberships.

Here are some reasons why 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.
