The Hackettstown Free Public Library Now Has a Library of Things Collection!

What is the Library of Things (LOT)?

Library of Things items are items for borrowing that are not traditional library items. These can include cake pans, kitchen appliances, e-readers, sporting equipment, etc. They are any item that the Library deems useful that most patrons would not buy for themselves and only use a few times.

What you need to know:

  • LOT items check out for 14 days.
  • They are non-renewable.
  • Overdue fees are $1 per day.
  • There is a $5 fee for items returned dirty or damaged.

If you have an idea for something that should be added to the Library of Things or you would like to donate a LOT item, please email us!
