We are creating a Library of Things in Crystal Palace, where you can borrow useful ‘things’ which you want but do not always need, or really need but cannot always afford to buy.
Like many people we often buy things that we use just that once and then pack away or see things in the shop that we desperately need but cannot afford to buy. In partnership with the local Transition Town, we are creating a Library of Things in our vibrant library space in Crystal Palace. All the ‘thing’s in the hub will be owned by the Library hub but offered at low cost to people who want to borrow them when they need it. We want to inspire and support people in our community to spend less, waste less and share more. The Crystal Palace Library of Things will help our community to build a powerful sharing economy and will facilitate knowledge and skills sharing. It will also create an opportunity for local residents to connect and network with others from this richly diverse community.
To be successful, we need to build momentum fast. We have just a short time to raise £9,000 – so please get sharing, click away, pledge some funds and help us to make a difference in our community. You can donate here!
