Take our makerspaces and studios on-the-go.

The Library of Things is a collection of equipment that can be reserved and checked out from Richland Library Main. The collection is a natural evolution of the library’s lending model and an extension of the various makerspaces and Studios available to customers inside our libraries. The Library of Things aims to reduce barriers for entrepreneurs, creatives, and lifelong learners by providing access to quality equipment.
