The Delphi Public Library introduces a new collection: The Library of Things!
This collection combines a number of themed items you would not necessarily expect to find at the library, such as a Cricut Cutter, Snap Circuits, a Go Pro camera, and more. Best of all, these items are all available for checkout using your library card - for free!
Explore the categories listed at the top of this page to learn more about the items in this collection and reserve the items you want to checkout.
Items in the Library of Things are available to check out for a period of one (1) week. Patrons will be allowed two (2) renewals on each item, unless the item has been placed on hold for another patron, in which case it may not be renewed.
Each checkout kit will include an inventory sheet of all included items, with replacement costs. Patrons can use this list to ensure all included pieces are returned with the kit, as well as to anticipate any potential charges for lost or damaged pieces.
development & donations
The initial curation of this collection was made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, administered by the Indiana State Library. As with all collections at the Delphi Public Library, we will continue to add new items to this collection to ensure that it continues to meet our patrons' needs and expectations.
If you have suggestions for this collection, or would like to make a material donation, please contact library staff.
