Library of Things

"Libraries were sharing before sharing was cool."

— Miguel Figueroa, director of the American Library Association's Center for the Future of Libraries

 

TCPL offers a collection of items that veer from traditional. Yes, we have a large collection of books and audiovisual materials, but we also have museum passes, reading glasses, umbrellas, basic toolkits, phone chargers, and tote bags that you can check out and use either in-house or take home with you. These items are listed in the catalog under "Library of Things" and are available at the Circulation desk.
