Libraries long ago expanded from books to include magazines, newspapers, music, movies and audiobooks. Our library took that a step further and now loans out board games and baking pans. Their baking pans are appropriately located in a section of cookbooks, tying in the library’s core product with this new expansion. What a great idea!
In addition to the expense, who really wants to store a shamrock-shaped muffin tin or a beehive cake mold? And what better way to try out new board games before you buy them or when you need multiples for a party?
Sharing is economically and ecologically friendly and the library is making it easier to take small risks and experiment with something new.
How can you take advantage of opportunities to borrow some resources and creatively expand your horizons today?
