Guidelines for Borrowing and Use

Objects lent out through the Library of Things program (“Things”), may only be checked out from and returned to Phoenixville Public Library.

  • All items must be returned to the Adult Circulation Desk during business hours.
  • Borrowers must be 18 years old or older, have an up-to-date library card and registration, and a Library account in good standing (i.e., cannot owe more than $9.99 in fines or fees or have any other restrictions on the card).
  • Borrowers are limited to two Things checked out at a time.
  • Things are first come, first served with no holds/reservations allowed.
  • Check-out is for 1 (one) week; no renewals allowed.
  • Borrowers must read, understand, and agree to these guidelines and Agreement before they check out a Thing.
  • The borrower will be fined $25.00 for each day a Thing is kept beyond its due date.


The borrower is solely responsible for the Thing and will be billed for reasonable repair or replacement costs associated with damage or loss of Things and/or peripherals due to neglect or abuse.

A list of the replacement costs of Things is maintained by the Library and is available upon request.

The responsibility to protect against loss is the borrower’s.

The Phoenixville Public Library is not responsible for the loss of any data while using this equipment.

Proper Care and Use

As with any Thing (or other library material), use care when handling.

Return the Thing in the condition it was borrowed: clean and with all parts and components.
