Borrowers must present a Montclair Public Library card at the designated pickup location (Main Library or Bellevue Avenue Branch). Only one thing per library card may be borrowed at a time, and the loan period varies per thing. Late fees and replacement costs for damaged things apply. See the full Library of Things policy.

The list of things offered will expand as donations and funding allow. Have a suggestion for an addition? Let us know.
