Donate

We are very grateful for all those who support the library, whether financially, by volunteering, or by donating Things to expand our range.

Now we have hired two paid members of staff to ensure we can offer a safe and reliable service, we are more dependent than ever on donated funds. Thank you to everyone who already supports us, and if you are considering helping, there are three options:

We are looking for volunteers in all areas of SHARE Oxford! Please see our volunteering page for more information.


We appreciate all offers of good quality new or second-hand items for the Library. 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.

We aim to stock the library with those things which people only need to use occasionally, and with a focus on practical tools and equipment which benefit from us looking after them. We’re focusing on these ranges:

  • DIY & Craft
  • Outdoors & camping
  • Entertaining
  • Gardening
  • Domestic & Cleaning
  • Technology

We continue to try and improve our offering and respond to ideas and requests from customers. These are some things we are looking for:
