A place where people can check out objects -- tools, games, instruments, etc.

How we can use our library to make Worthing an even better place to live?

Worthing Library already lends out a few things, like children's toys and equipment for people with special needs. Let's expand that into a service everyone can use -- a Library of Things for the whole community.

We can ask local people to donate items (in good condition) they own but don't use very often: things like power tools, board games, musical instruments, kitchen gadgets, camping gear, etc. Anyone who needs to borrow something can check it out just like a library book.

We should also ask as many people as possible what sorts of things they'd want to borrow, to make sure the items we have on offer are the ones people actually want and need.
