Library of Things

Bedford Public Library Library of ThingsIn June of 2023, the Bedford Public Library officially launched our Library of Things! The Library of Things contains unusual items that you might not otherwise expect to check out from a library - for example binoculars, a yarn swift and a ukulele.

Library of Things items may be checked out by Bedford Public Library cardholders age 18 and older with library cards in good standing (not expired and no fees over $10.00).  Most items circulate for two weeks (just like a book) and may be picked up at the circulation desk.

To see a full list of objects in our Library of Things, please visit our online catalog or stop by the circulation desk during any open hours.


The Bedford Public Library would like to thank the Bedford Public Library Foundation for generously funding the purchase of many of our Library of Things items and Bedford High School student Claire Kraemer, who put together the proposal for our Library of Things as part of her senior project.
