Library Adds wide Range of Tools, Tech & Games to Growing 'Library of Things' Collection

NMC Library of Things logoNext time you come to the library, you might leave not just with a book, but a board game too – or a disc golf set, a musical instrument, or even a telescope!

This spring saw the launch of our new 'Library of Things' collection, an experiment in embracing a broader notion of the kinds of resources libraries can steward for their communities. We introduced the collection with a game night in February so folks could try out the many board games now available for checkout at the library.

In the months since, we have asked students, faculty, and staff for their input about what we should add to this new Library of Things as it expands. Based on your suggestions, the collection continues to grow, adding everything from a selection of lawn games to binoculars to a sewing machine — all yours to borrow free of charge with your NMC ID!
