Frequently Asked Questions

What exactly is the Library of Things?

How long can a these items be checked out?

All items can be checked out for 2 weeks at a time.

Who can check out an item in the Library of Things?

Anyone can check out one of these items! However, they must be checked out and returned at this library, and they cannot be returned in the book drop. Additionally, Westwood residents are able to place holds on items in the Library of Things.

What happens if we accidentally break or loose one of these items?

Please make sure you take extra care of these materials as the fines can be more than a typical book. We hope that this doesn't happen, but if it does, please contact the Circulation Department, or speak to a librarian at the desk to find out what the next steps are.
