Have you heard about the 'Library of Things' - a friendly space that lends out useful items and teaches you how to use them.
Where you can:
- borrow useful items like DIY tools, gardening things, kitchenware, camping kit and events equipment
- learn how to use items in 1-to-1 sessions and workshops
- get to know your neighbours at regular open nights
Could something like this be set up in Wales? Come along to this special Urbanistas social to find out more.
Jane Booty contacted Urbanistas about the idea: "When I read about the Library of Things I immediately recognised an idea that I had been carrying about in my mind for a long time but could never quite grasp to take forward.
It makes sense in a time of austerity, it makes sense in terms of climate change & sustainability, it makes sense in terms of community and more besides.
It is a brilliant concept and I would love to see a Library of Things in Cardiff - at least one! - why not one in every area?!
I'd be very happy to start the process of at least exploring this with anyone else who is interested with a little time and energy to spare and share."
