Library of Things
Libraries loaning “stuff” isn’t a new concept. Framed paintings were available for checkout at the Newark (N.J.) Public Library back in 1904. Lincolnwood’s Library of Things doesn’t have framed pictures, but you can take photos and videos with a GoPro, binge watch a favorite Netflix or Disney+ show using a Roku, or ditch the Ethernet cables with a WiFi hotspot and more.
We hope you enjoy the Library of Things and we hope you’ll share with us on social media using the hashtag #LincolnwoodCreates.
