Page Public Library lends more than just books

Sports equipment, backpacks and guidebooks will help patrons have fun and see new places.

Most people think of libraries as places that lend out only books and DVDs. Not in Page, it isn’t!

The “Library of Things” at the Page Public Library is a community service that offers a variety of things for patrons to check out – from sporting equipment kits to bikes to cake pans.

The collection supports lifelong learning, creativity and fun.

“This collection offers Page area library members the opportunity to be introduced to new and emerging technologies, to try out items before buying them, and encourages the ‘sharing economy’ by offering access to items that may normally be inaccessible to many patrons or needed just once or twice a year,” said Debbie Winlock, the director of Page Public Library.

The Page Public Library has always been a place where people can come to learn anything they are curious about – now they are offering patrons the tools to satisfy and encourage that curiosity.
