Jackson County offers a 'library of things'

Beyond-the-Book-Library-of-Things-Logo-1.jpg

Libraries figured out a long time ago that they'd have to expand their offerings to meet the needs of their communities.

Books, magazines, and newspapers would not be enough for a modern electronic world. And now the things you can check out go beyond words, images, and sounds... to household goods, tools, toys and more.

Jackson County Library Services offers a Library of Things, allowing patrons to check out things like guitars and bicycle repair kits and air fryers.

Ashley Johnson is Technical Services Supervisor at Jackson County Library Services; she visits with details on the loans and loaners.
