KW Library of Things


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

We're open Saturdays between 9am and 1pm at 91 Moore Avenue.
Stop by to browse our inventory and signup for a membership.

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.
