Event description

Description

Love the idea of Library of Things and want to start one where you are?
Need to know what it takes to get started?
Got questions around the business model, the space, the team, the things – and the benefits of borrowing?

This intro tour will give you a glimpse behind the scenes – what it’s like to run a Library of Things day to day, and what resources you’ll need to get started.

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 space, money and people do you need to start a Library of Things?

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

  • What are the headlines of the business model?

  • What systems do I need in place eg. for health and safety etc?

  • What are the biggest challenges? How does Library of Things overcome them?

  • I run other services eg. a book lending / bike repair service. How does Library of Things work alongside those?

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

Following this tour, you'll be invited to join a Facebook group where you'll learn more about setting up a Library of Things
