ASC Library of Things


In 2021, we delivered a successful Library of Things trial, where people borrowed sewing machines, camping gear, and other sustainable living items.

By sharing resources, the Adelaide Sustainability Centre aims to support reduction of community consumption and waste, challenge people to rethink the concept of ownership, and enable people access to resources they may not otherwise have had.

In 2023, we are now officially launching the ASC Library of Things in partnership with Housing Choices SA and welcome you to join us as an individual, household, group or organisation. We also hope to encourage and better enable other groups to establish a Library of Things too.
