What is the Library of Things?

Here at the Public Library of Brookline, we believe that community knowledge and support is bigger than anything that can be contained in books and films alone: it’s playing a board game with your friends and family or challenging yourself to try a new piece of technology. It’s being inspired by a work of art in a local museum or having the tools you need to land that job interview.

Our Library of Things is a collection of objects that provide the opportunity to learn and grow by doing, seeing, and making. Check out our Catalog of Things to learn more.
