Checking out Weird Stuff in the Library

A recent blog post on NPR's The ProtoJournalist lists some surprising and odd things that libraries check out. Books, CDs, DVDs...sure!  But, did you know there are libraries that check out the following:

  • Fishing poles
  • Energy meters
  • Puppets
  • Heirloom seeds for your garden
  • Camping gear
  • Snowshoes
  • Artwork to hang in your home
  • Microscopes, telescopes and life-size human skeleton models.
  • Board and video games

You may ask yourself, does Carmichael Library lend out any "weird" items? Why yes, we do. You can borrow bicycles, digital video cameras, audio recorders, and headphones!
