NEW TCPL Library of Things Unveiling
Main Library, 40 Washington Street, Quincy, MA, 02169
Join us for the unveiling of our new Library of Things at the Main Library!
The TCPL will be offering musical instruments, cake pans, tools, stand mixers, and many more amazing non-traditional items. The aim is to foster the circular economy and reduce excessive consumption and accumulation of objects we don’t use. It is based on the “lend instead of buy” principle and not only helps to reduce environmental impact, but also promotes community belonging and mutual learning. How many times a year do you use a power drill? Is it really necessary to keep one at home? Our homes are full of equipment we hardly use, although it might be useful for occasional specific tasks. Instead of 100 drills doing nothing in 100 homes, would it not be better sharing one among all of us?
Please join us for light refreshments, and to ask any questions about what the Library of Things is, what it contains, and why it is important.
