If you’d like to support our cause and you’ve got some Things, money, or time you’d like to share, please read on…

… and during the corona virus period

If you are in a position to support us while the Library is paused, any help would be much appreciated. We are a non-profit community group, and still expecting to be paying rent for our space throughout this uncertain period.

Here are some ways you might like to support us:

  • You can make a one-off donation via this Paypal link (and see below)
  • You can log in to your Library account here and sign up for a membership (flexible options) – any monthly or annual accounts set up now can be “activated” whenever we’re back up and running and you’re ready to borrow.

Donate Things

Once we are back up and running again, we will again appreciate all offers of good quality new or second-hand items for the Library. Please email us at libraryofthings@shareoxford.org to discuss. Please note, with limited space we need to be selective and cannot accept all donations so it is important to contact us before bringing your potential donation along.

The Library aims to stock a wide variety of items which are useful to people occasionally, within the following broad categories:

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

People sometimes ask us for things that we haven’t got, and – trying to be ever more useful – we try to see if anyone out there can help us get them. These are some things we would like to have:

Please email us at libraryofthings@shareoxford.org so we can arrange to talk about your possible donation. We are also open to having items on loan under a Lending Agreement between SHARE Oxford and the owner.


Donate financially

We are also very grateful for any financial donations – these will help us with our ongoing running costs and also help us to improve and expand the Library and our Repair Cafés. We are especially grateful for any financial support while we continue to have expenses but no income from loans.

You can donate via PayPal using the button below, contribute by signing up for a one-off or continual membership, or contact us at libraryofthings@shareoxford.org to discuss other options.
