Public libraries create collections of items to be used by everyone to pursue their interests, further their education, and provide entertainment. Sharing, conservation of resources and the idea that you don’t have to have everything you need in your home are key to the idea of a central collection that everyone can use. The Akron-Summit County Public Library has been adding to traditional library resources and currently has multiple Library of Things collections for you to borrow. 

Watch this page as more collections are added. Click on the links below to be taken to the Library Catalog for that collection where you can get more information, see pictures and place holds.
