Library of Things

The Library of Things is a collection of non-traditional items that compliment the Northborough Free Library's mission to 
provide materials, space, access and opportunities for members of the community to learn and discover, and to enrich their lives and further their personal goals. 

Patrons who borrow a Thing agree to abide by the Northborough Free Library's Library of Things lending guidelines. Things must be checked out and returned in Nortborough. Things may not be requested, with the exception of the telescope.

During the closure of the Library due to COVID-19, use the special Library of Things Request Form to hold Things. We will send you an email when your requested items are available, and you can sign up for curbside pickup to get them.
