Library of Things Community Survey: We want your Input
The Squamish Public Library is looking into expanding its Library of Things, and we want your input!

What is a Library of Things?
A Library of Things is a collection of non-traditional library items available for the community to borrow for free. These items might be rarely used, hard to store, or expensive, such as tools, cooking appliances and hobby items.  

We want this collection to be useful to many audiences, reduce community-wide waste and consumption, and contribute to social inclusion, accessibility, and affordability for members of the community. Your input will help guide the development of this collection.

Thank you for participating in this survey - it should take about 5 minutes to complete.

PS: Did you know that the Squamish Public Library already offers some non-traditional items (video game consoles, board games, museum passes, bat detectors, to name a few)? View our current Library of Things here!
