The Buxton Library of Things has been a good idea that we have been keen to bring to Buxton for some time.  Now, with thanks to Derbyshire County Council who have given us permission to occupy an area within the Library on Cote Heath our Library of Things will soon be a reality.

The Library of Things will offer a wide range of useful Things for Library of Things Members to borrow. We have a small start-up grant from the National Lottery Communities fund and have received several items from generous supporters and this will help us to keep any charges at an affordable level. 

This is a not for profit community enterprise, run by volunteers.  After we have exhausted our small start up grant the Library of Things needs to be financially self sufficient.  Membership will cost £5, or £2.50 if you are unwaged and last for a year from your first borrow and we hope that members will be willing to give a donation (pay as you feel) when borrowing an item. A few high value items will also need a refundable security deposit.  The full Terms of Borrowing (the rules) are here

You can create an account by clicking the Create Account button on this page and this will be confirmed by the Library of Things team. After that you can start reserving items! The first time you visit your library, you'll be asked to sign our membership conditions and pay your membership fee. 

 Contact if you have any questions or if you would like to donate an item.
