Think libraries are just for reading and checking out books? Not quite. Peabody Public Library recently expanded its offerings by adding home goods items, available for patrons to check out in the adult department.PPLHomeGoodsb318.jpg
Some of the items that will be available for check out are: several new tool sets, a sewing machine, assorted cake pans for baking, rubber stamping sets and more!
In addition to the home goods, the library will continue to offer items like lawn games, puzzles, electronic devices, children's games and activities and more.
"Have you ever had a time when you started a project you thought would take five minutes but then it turned into hours because you didn't have the right equipment?
Well, the Library hopes to help you with that predicament," said Peabody Public Library executive director Mary Hartman. "We have an assortment of tools and
home goods available to checkout. No more buying something you are only going to use one time. Save some money and stop by the library to check that item out. We even have a sewing machine to loan out!"
If you have additional questions about the items contact the adult department at the library at 260-244-5541 or Deb Lowrance at dlowrance@ppl.lib.in.us.
