Library of Things

Library of Things

Borrow the tools and things you need.

Not sure what to give a loved one for Christmas, why not give them all the things?

Buy a ‘Proud Supporter Gift Membership’ and give the gift of free loans from the Bath Library of Things for a year for just £40.

Or choose the ‘Super Supporter Gift Membership’ so that you can gift one membership AND donate a free membership to a local charity, helping more people in our community get hold of the things they need.

Donate Things – check out our Wish List

We love all offers of good quality new or second-hand items for the Library of Things. Our current wish list is below. If you think you have something that would be good (whether it’s on the wish list or not), get in touch at or call us on 07486 518197.

And remember: You can also lend us things to share with other Library users (the items still belong to you to borrow whenever you need it) a great option if storage at home is limited.
