The Library of Things

The Library of Things at the Warrenton Community Library is a service that offers things for patrons to checkout – from guitars to games to an instant pot.

The collection supports lifelong learning and creativity by providing the physical tools necessary to explore new areas of interest and learn new skills. 
The Warrenton Community Library has always been a place where you can come to learn anything you are curious about – now we are offering you the tools to satisfy and encourage that curiosity.
Want to make a purchase suggestion, donate a gently used thing, or volunteer to help?
