Next month, Klamath County Library will unveil a “library of things.”
The program allows library users the chance to choose from about 50 items to borrow for one week. It’s inventory includes everything from a telescope to a cornhole set, fly fishing rod, sewing machine, binoculars or a food dehydrator. Items will be available for kitchen, outdoor and recreation, electronic, and arts and crafts and music supplies and all are new and purchased by the library.
“It works the same way that books do,” said Charla Oppenlander, supervising librarian. “We’ve been checking out Chromebooks and tablets and things for a while. It’s just sort of a trend, I guess, as we move to adding things besides just print books to our collection.”
