Library of Things

Crystal Palace Library of Things is now open for borrowing!

Following a successful crowdfunding campaign last year, which raised £9,375 from nearly 300 backers, we’ve been working in partnership with Crystal Palace Transition Town and Library of Things to bring this great addition to our vibrant library space.

Crystal Palace Library of Things is a place where you can borrow useful Things like drills, gazebos and carpet cleaners at affordable prices and learn how to use them. Like many people, we often buy things that we use just once, or see things in the shop that we desperately need or want but cannot afford to buy. We want to inspire and support people in our community to spend less, waste less and share more.

Crystal Palace Library of Things will also create opportunities for local residents to connect and share skills with others from this richly diverse community through its events programme. These could be events like DIY classes, sessions to fix things like clothes and electronics, cooking workshops, and lots more.
