We would be very grateful for any offers of donations in the following categories that are suitable for the aims of the Library Of Things:

  • DIY
  • Outdoors
  • Sports
  • Leisure
  • Domestic

  • Cooking
  • Gardening
  • Children’s/babies’
  • Transport
  • what else? – tell us

Items can be second-hand but 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.
