Library of Things

The Library of Things is Winchester Public Library’s collection of non-traditional materials. Ever want to try out a ukulele? Curious about an Instant Pot? Have you been wanting to throw that karaoke birthday party but you’re not quite sure if you’re ready to invest in a karaoke machine of your own? Need a beach umbrella?

Look no further! You can borrow all that and more.

● Library of Things items can be checked out for three weeks and can be renewed twice.
● Anyone with a Minuteman Library card in good standing can check out Library of Things items, but LoT items must be picked up and returned inside the Winchester Public Library at the Circulation desk.
● Full replacement costs will be charged for items and accessories that are not returned or are damaged.
● All patrons must sign a Library of Things Lending Agreement at the Circulation desk before checking items out of this collection.
● Patrons under the age of 18 need a parent or guardian to complete the agreement prior to checking out items.
