Library of Things

Your Eugene Public Library card provides opportunities to check out a wide variety of tools, toys, and other items for learning, creativity and fun. From cameras to sewing machines to robotics kits, our Library of Things offers ways to explore new interests, to learn new skills or to borrow instead of buying.


Starting in summer 2022, we’re expanding our Library of Things to include many new items and whole new categories of items. Watch for more choices coming soon. If you have suggestions, let us know.

Choose a Library of Things category to browse our catalog and place hold requests for pickup at the Downtown Library. Or find items for same-day checkout on shelves at the Downtown Library.

At Bethel and Sheldon: wifi hotspots are currently available and larger collections of Things will launch later this year.
