Library of Things

Libraries are in the business of lending – books, dvd’s, audiobooks, and eBooks come to mind. But the Peru Public Library added some unusual things to our lending collection – folding chairs, board games, tote baskets and much more. We created a Library of Things, a collection of gadgets, devices, and objects that you need infrequently (slide projector, button maker) or want to try (3D printing pens, Roku).

Use your library card to borrow from the collection, however, the Hotspots and Roku’s are limited to just Peru library patrons.
