The Kingsport Public Library is excited to announce that a Library of Things collection is now available to the community. The collection contains a variety of items that community members might need to use infrequently or want to try before they purchase it. From garden tools, to outdoor games, to crafting tools, the collection contains a variety of things.
“We want to provide the community with access to the resources they need,” said Chris Markley, Manager of the Kingsport Public Library. “This collection will continue to grow to support the varied interests and needs of the community.”
Library of Things items are available to adults with a Kingsport Public Library card. The items check out for 7 days and may be renewed one time if there are no holds on the item. All items must be returned to the circulation desk.
While the Library of Things collection is small, the suggested borrowing limit on items in this collection is one at a time.
Some of the items available in the Library of Things include – a bean bag toss set, cultivator, electric air pump, embroidery hoops, horseshoes, leaf blower, pickleball set, posthole digger, soccer ball and goal, stud finder, volleyball set and wrenches.
