Library of Things

Libraries are more than just books! Check out some of our non-traditional collections.

Borrowing Rules

Items must be picked up and returned at the Berlin-Peck Memorial Library. You cannot return them to other libraries.

Borrowers will be charged for lost, dirty, or damaged items. Because we want to keep items in good working order, they cannot be returned in the book drop. If the item is returned in the book drop, the borrower will be held responsible for the damage and the replacement cost.

To prevent damage, DO NOT return these items in the book drop.
