Blackwood Library of Things (LoT)

Ever needed that cake tin or gardening tool for that once in a blue moon occasion so it doesn't make sense to spend a lot but buy cheap quality rubbish seems so wasteful. This is where the Library of Things is a great way to live more sustainably and as a community.
Still in the development stages, local volunteer Ian Naisworth hopes to have the LoTs up and running mid June 2024.
If you have any items to donate please call in Saturday's between 9am-12pm only.
Where: Starting temporarily in the shared space of Shop 2, 10 Waite Street, Blackwood.
