ASC Library of Things Trial
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.
We also aim to share our learnings from the trial, to encourage and better enable other groups to establish a Library of Things too.

Our 2-month trial ran from from April-May 2021. Trial membership cost is a donation (minimum $5)/ a pay-what-you-can model. All donations go towards running the Library of Things. Following the trial period, we will be seeking your feedback to inform our next steps. Thanks for participating!
We have extended borrowing until 21 December 2021. We look forward to sharing our learnings and next steps with you soon.
