Did you know you can check out a light therapy lamp at the Des Moines Public library? Yes! In addition to books and DVDs, you can check out THINGS! There is a Library of Things at the Des Moines Public Library. You can check out kitchen ware, electronics, tools and so much more! You can check out an ice cream maker or a pasta maker! You can check out a 360 camera! How cool is this?! Everything can be checked out for a week and renewed if no one is waiting for the items.
The idea behind this is to reuse instead of waste things.
