Do you know about The Library of Things at the Mansfield/Richland County Public Library?

The Library of Things is a collection of non-traditional library items that complement the MRCPL’s mission to offer engaging and relevant experiences for people of all ages, supporting a vibrant quality of life. In particular, its purpose is to provide diverse opportunities for learning and engagement.

Patrons who borrow a Thing agree to abide by MRCPL’s Library of Things lending guidelines. Things must be checked out and returned in-person, not placed in a library book drop. Some Things require the completion of a borrower’s agreement and require the customer to be 18 years or older with a valid library card and ID.
