We are going to be holding our Annual General Meeting online, in the afternoon of Saturday May 15th.

Drop us a line at libraryofthings@shareoxford.org if you think you’d like to be there with us.

Welcome to SHARE Oxford

We are passionate about saving waste.
We aim to make sharing easier, to increase access to good quality things so that we may reduce consumption and waste, save money, save the environment, and feel good about it.

What we do

Our Library of Things enables you to
borrow instead of buy
items needed only occasionally,
such as outdoor, domestic, cooking equipment and more.

We have re-opened with Covid security in place!
Now open: Thurs & Saturday, 12-6pm

We run regular Repair Cafés, where our volunteers
fix your broken items to keep them in use for longer.

Autumn/Winter 2020:
Our repair cafés are now running on an ad-hoc basis
Find out more about our Repair Cafés and
the date of the next event

We have Volunteering opportunities!
We’re particularly looking for Librarians,
either to be located at our base, or exploring new locations.
And we always welcome new repairers.

Online meeting

We’re having our AGM on Saturday 15th at 1.30pm. Online again this year, because although it’s fine coming to get ‘things’ from the Library, it’s still not fine to come into the Library or to meet in any numbers. If you fancy being at the AGM, email and ask for the linklibraryofthings@shareoxford.org
