SHARE Oxford, a Library of Things – next open day. Come and see where we are and how it will work. Help us sort, clean, mend, categorise things, and enjoy our company, etc. 

Please also bring along anything that you could donate to the Library for others to be able to borrow and use.

Sunday, August 26th, 11am-1pm at Makespace, I Aristotle Lane, OX2 6TP

This website – like the Library itself – is under construction.

Might you have something to donate or lend to the Library …

We now have a location and somewhere secure to store items for the Library. Now we want to build up our stock so that we have a good offering when we launch SHARE Oxford. We would be very grateful for any offers of donations of items in any of the following categories:

  • DIY
  • Outdoors
  • Sports
  • Leisure
  • Domestic
  • Cooking
  • Gardening
  • Children’s/babies’
  • Transport
  • what else? – tell us

Please note that items must be in reasonable or good condition, and we hope you won’t be offended if we have to refuse your donation. We are also open to having items on loan under a Lending Agreement between SHARE Oxford and the owner.

Please email us at libraryofthings@shareoxford.org so we can arrange to talk about your possible donation or loan. Thank you.

We will also soon start taking memberships.

Also email us at libraryofthings@shareoxford.org to find out more or if you’d like to get involved.

Our vision

We aim to enable our members to share access to good quality things so that they may prevent waste, save money, save the environment, and feel good about it.

Libraries of Things …

… exist in many places. If you want to find out about the idea and where they exist, you could look here for example https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Library_of_Things .

We would like to acknowledge help and support we had from the London Library of Things and SHARE Frome (who allowed us to copy their name too) in turning the idea of a Library of Things in Oxford from the idea into a reality.
