Hello you! And welcome to the Library of Things!

Are you here because you want to save money, reduce clutter in your house and do your bit to save the planet? AMAZING.

We have a FAQ section on our website (link HERE) but if you have any questions you can send us an email to hello@borrowdontbuy.co.uk or contact us via our Facebook page (link HERE)

 

Here’s a quick guide on How to Borrow from Us:

 

Step ONE -  BECOME A MEMBER

 

  • Create your borrowing account HERE
  • Remember to fill in your contact details and address. We will have to see a proof of ID and address with your first loan.

 

How much does it cost to sign up as a member? Well, it’s free! But if you can donate something towards it, it will help us keep it free for others. A donation of £5 helps us a lot!

 

Step TWO - RESERVE AN ITEM

Log in by clicking at the top right of this page or click HERE.

HERE’s a video on how to make a reservation

Please note:

- Due to our new disinfecting procedures, we prepare the reserved items in advance. We will only consider reservations submitted at 20:00 on Tuesday for Wednesday’s pick-up. 

- You will have to pick a time slot to come and collect your item. We have introduced this to prevent people from gathering at THINQTANQ

-Same week pick-up reservations (No reservations in advanced - we've learned how quickly things can change)

 

Step THREE -  COLLECT YOUR RESERVATION

One of our volunteers will be waiting for you at THINQTANQ’s door with your item. Please don’t be late for the pick-up slot that you chose while booking the items.

They will be wearing PPE and might look scary but they are smiling and happy to help under al the sci-fi looks. Collections will be done as a drive-through (or walk/cycle-through) system. 

 

Step FOUR - RETURN

After you’ve used the items, simply return it, clean, on time, and ready for the next borrower. 

There are no time slots for returns. Just buzz for THINQTANQ and one of our volunteers will come down to receive your item. 

 

Stay safe, stay kind, and remember to make a difference!
