Library of Things

Your Eugene Public Library card provides opportunities to check out a wide variety of tools, toys, and other items for learning, creativity and fun. From cameras to sewing machines to robotics kits, our Library of Things offers ways to explore new interests, to learn new skills or to borrow instead of buying.

We’re expanding our Library of Things to include many new items and whole new categories of items. Watch for more choices coming soon. If you have suggestions, let us know.

Choose a Library of Things category to browse our catalog and place hold requests for pickup. Or find items for same-day checkout on shelves at all library locations.

All cardholders can check out any item, regardless of library location. However, most Library of Things items can't be transferred to a different location; they need to be picked up and returned from their home location. (Exceptions are wifi hotspots and cultural passes, which can be transferred.)
