Our Black Friday Offer

This Black Friday – also Buy Nothing Day – for one whole week (26th November to 3rd December) we’re offering you the chance to enjoy one free borrow from the Library of Things – Oxford’s community sharing scheme.

Who can use this offer?

  • Anyone!
  • If you haven’t borrowed from us before you’ll just need to sign up for membership to reserve your item (you don’t have to pay for this – but you will need to bring some ID as a first-time borrower).
  • There’s no obligation to remain a member or borrow again (though we hope you will!)

What, any item?!

  • Eligible items are any with a loan fee of £12 or less (that’s ~94% of our items!)
  • Any item normally costing over £12 will be discounted by £12.

How many items? How long can I use them for?

  • One free item per person
  • If you borrow a few things together, the highest-cost item you borrow (up to £12) will be free!
  • The free borrow applies for the standard loan period only (1 week for most items).
  • If you need your item for longer you can renew but the normal fee will apply. Late fees apply to items not returned on time.

When can I book and collect my item?

  • Reserve your item any time from now! Here‘s the catalogue.
  • You must book to collect between *Tues 26th Nov* and *Tues 3rd Dec* to get the free item.
  • Check our Contact page for our location and Opening Hours.
  • As an extra opportunity for collection we will have bonus opening on Friday 29th November from 12 midday till 6pm.

How is the discount applied?
