Happy birthday, Oxford Library of Things

Today makes three years since SHARE Oxford officially launched the Library of Things. That was at the end of several months of acquiring ‘things’ (thank you all those donors of their unwanted items) and a group of volunteers creating our style, and setting up processes and trialling them.

The momentum has built ever since and we’ve learnt so much since then, had a changing group of helpers, added to our stock (there are now some 750 items in the Library), and made coming up to 1,900 loans (despite the downturn during lockdown).

With yet more newer volunteers, a recently constituted Board of Directors, and the evidence that the Oxford Library of Things is a going concern, we look forward to more years – alongside that growing number of Libraries across the UK and in other countries (we look forward to more ‘twinnings’ too).
