Event description

Description

Love the idea of Library of Things and want to learn how to start one where you are?
Researching the circular economy or future of cities and want your questions answered?
Want a taster of the way we'll all live in 2030?

This tour will give you a glimpse behind the scenes – what it’s like to run a Library of Things day to day, what resources it takes to get started, and the wider movement that this project is part of.

Join this 90 minute tour and mini workshop to:

+ Visit the space, as seen on BBC News
+ Meet the team, including a Library of Things co-founder director
+ Be inspired by stories of local borrowers – how have they benefitted?
+ Find out what it takes to start a Library of Things, including

  • What’s a day in the life of someone running a Library of Things?

  • What are the headlines of the business model?

  • What space, money and people do you need to start a Library of Things? What systems do I need in place eg. for health and safety etc?

  • What are the biggest challenges to these models working? How does Library of Things overcome them?

  • How does Library of Things work alongside other services like book lending / bike repair / community gardens / makerspaces?

+ Plus opportunities for Q&A, photos, coffee and networking – and a follow-up email sharing the presentation.

Prices

+ I'm self-funding (not with an organisation), a student or a pensioner: £24

+ I'm from a grassroots or voluntary sector organisation: £40

+ I'm from a public or commercial organisation: £90

Our prices assume your organisation can cover your costs.

All fees go towards the continued development of Library of Things as a service for everyone.
