The Library of Things takes DIY to the next level with a collection of items no one expects to find at the Library! Check out technology, instruments, yard games, tools, & so much more without the price tag!

A special thank you to the Illinois Prairie Community Foundation for grant funding to add new educational items to our Library of Things!
