It’s better to borrow than to buy

A website based Click & Collect facility for the community of Topsham.

Library of Things (LoT) is based on a ‘sharing culture‘, providing a facility that lends items to members of a local community – supporting a growing awareness that it’s time to cut down on waste, declutter and to save money. The idea for the Topsham LoT sits perfectly alongside the popular Topsham Repair Cafe, as well as our shared aims for a NetZero future.Storage, Collections and Returns

We will shortly be announcing the opening of the ‘Library of Things‘. Initially we will be operating from the Dorothy Holman Centre next to the Topsham Rec. Ferry Road – See map on the Contacts Page. In the long term we hope to construct a purpose built store on the site.

Donate an Item

We would like your support in donating an item that you might only use once or twice a year so that it could be used time & time again by others in the community. So what could you donate to free up a bit of space in your house or garage?
You can even donate money to help us source tools, camping equipment, a game…. the list is endless!

Borrow an Item –

You’ll be able to Click & Collect from a growing range of ‘things’ in the Library, members of the Topsham community will be able to search through the on-line catalogue, choose a time period for the loan, then simply Click & Collect.
There will be a fee, depending on the item, and the time you need it. The income will help finance the project and maintain the facilities Topsham
Community Association provides for the community.
