Hastings Library of Things

Save Money, Save Space, Save the Planet

This page has been archived as, after lots of help and support from Heart of Hastings the Hastings Library of Things has managed to go independent. Thanks, we really couldn’t have got this community project going without you!

How it Works

Everyone can join the library. It is a community project organised and ran by it’s members

Members pay a small fee annual fee (£3) to join and borrowing is free.

Members use the things then bring them back to be used again

(What sort of things? All sorts of things- camping things, DIY things, cooking things)

*We charge what we need to cover rent and so on, no-ones making a profit

Help: Join, Donate things, Become a librarian to help us lend and look after our things, spread the word… Facebook, Instagram and Twitter
