A few members from JHERA are pitching in to get a Library of Things underway in the neighbourhood. It’s going to be based at St Peter’s Church and will offer people that chance to borrow everything from tools and garden equipment to kitchen appliances and carpet cleaners. The project is being supported by Civic and some inspiring women who have started a Library of Things in West Norwood.
We’re beginning the planning stages but hope to have the bare bones up and running in a matter of weeks. Our first planning meeting will be Wednesday (Oct 19) evening from 7:30pm. Please see this webpage for more details.
The long and short of it is, we’re looking for people to:
Cheerlead it – the more (and more diverse range of) people involved in the project, the better, so please spread the word
Run it – join the team planning session to line up the rest of the project (Wed 19th Oct 7.30-8.30pm at St Peter’s)
Clear it – help to prepare the site for the storage units and things (Sat 22nd Oct pm)
Make it – join the gang building and installing the shelves and “kiosk” (Sat 29th Oct pm)
Give it – help us to source and collect useful items from around the area (starting in Nov)
Borrow it – need a thing or know people who do? Come along! (starting in Nov)
