Become a borrower, at Yorks First Lending Library! Be part of a community organization focused on making a difference.
York’s Lending Library.
Well it seems every major city in the UK has its own Lending library these days, so why not in York! The Recycle Project is already at the forefront of creating a circular economy and we found ourselves the perfect candidates to start a Lending library.
Have your say at york’s lending library.
We hold a monthly meeting to discuss how the library can improve. We want everyone to have access within the community and would love to have your input on how we can make this happen.
Helping to save our planet.
Initiatives like lending libraries contribute to a more circular economy, reducing our carbon footprint and encouraging a borrow don’t buy generation. Not to mention reducing waste, saving money and reducing the need for space.
We give free memberships to local charities/non profit organizations, giving their users access to the library. As our user base increases we will use some of the profits to provide more community memberships.
Our lending library fits into the consumption segment. The more people borrow the less we consume! How many times have you bought something to use it only once?
Become a volunteer...
We are recruiting volunteers to help grow and maintain the library. We are not short of items to fill York’s library with, the problem is having a team with the right ethos to help us pull it off. Please get in touch via email to register your interest.
