The KW Library of Things is a space where you can borrow infrequently used items such as tools or camping equipment.

We're open Saturdays between 9am and 1pm at 91 Moore Avenue. Stop by to browse our inventory and signup for a membership.

Here are some reasons why community members love us already...

Save Money

By borrowing instead of purchasing items you use infrequently, you save your money.

Save the Environment

Reduce the resources you consume and the number of items you send to the landfill by sharing.

Support your community

Your membership fees provide inclusive employment opportunities in your community

Become a member

Come by during our open hours to become a member. Membership gets you borrowing access to any tools, kitchen items or camping gear in the Library of Things, for a week at time.

Memberships are $40, and you can borrow up to 10 items at a time.

We also have sponsored memberships, generously donated by community members and organizations.

At this time, we are only able to accept cash or cheque for memberships.

We’ve received over 350 donated items through the generosity of the Kitchener-Waterloo community! We are still looking for the items below. Feel free to drop them off at 91 Moore Ave (Extend-A-Family’s office and the future site of the library) anytime between 9am-4:30pm on a weekday.
