Donate Things

We appreciate all offers of good quality new or second-hand items for the Library. Please email us at 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:
