Library of Things / Lending "Outside of the box" / Maker Mondays (Library of Things, Board Games & Seeds oh my!)

Libraries are offering more non-traditional items for their patrons: board games, croquet sets, circuit kits, deep fryers, cake pans, seed packets and more are now available to check out and use. No matter the size of your library you can find a collection that works for your community. These thunder talks (slightly longer than lightning talks!) introduce ideas around non-traditional lending collections and programs at your library.
