Library of Things

Based on significant interest expressed in a survey of residents conducted by the Town of Banff, the Town and the Banff Public Library have partnered to pilot an equipment lending program. The Library of Things at the Banff Public Library is open!

Banff and ID9 residents will be able to borrow a variety of items that may be rarely used, hard to store, or are expensive, such as tools, cooking appliances, and hobby items. It is free to access for all Banff residents; all you need is a valid Banff Public Library membership. The Library of Things will be available to borrow during regular library hours,  Monday – Friday, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. 

The Library of Things will help reduce community-wide waste and consumption, and contribute to social inclusion, accessibility, and affordability for members of the community.

The initiative could be expanded in the future with community programming such as training workshops, repair/fix-it sessions, community events (sewing tutorials, vehicle maintenance workshops) and more.
