Library of Things
The San Leandro Public Library just got more awesome. From sewing kits and drills to mini induction stoves and bird watching telescopes, we have all sorts of tools and educational kits for the whole family to borrow.
What is the Library of things?
San Leandro Public Library’s Library of Things (LOT) will provide the community with non-regular items to be borrowed from the library collection. it can include tools, games, educational kits, and other miscellaneous items.
How it works?
San Leandro Library card holders can borrow non-regular library materials. We have material for all ages. Patrons will need to sign a waiver (for some equipment). The time for items to be check out is three weeks with no renewals and cannot be place on hold. Items can only be checked out and returned at the Main Library when open. Patrons are expected to return items in good, clean condition.
