Library of Things

Library of Things is privately funded by donations.

The Library of Things is a collection of non-traditional library items that complement the Cary Memorial Library’s mission to ignite curiosity, facilitate lifelong learning, and connect our community. The purpose of the Library of Things is to provide diverse opportunities for learning and engagement.

Patrons who borrow a Thing agree to abide by the Cary Memorial Library’s Library of Things lending guidelines below. Things must be checked out and returned in Lexington, and may be requested by Lexington residents. Things circulate for 2 weeks ($1.00/day overdue).

Further information about this collection can be found in Library of Things Collection Development Policy and Guidelines for Borrowing and Use
