Join the Manchester Library of Things and start borrowing! We have pay as you go or yearly membership options available, including discounted memberships for students and people on a low income.

How does it work?

1. Join

Register as a member of the Library (coming soon!) You can sign up for annual membership, or borrow on a pay-as-you-go basis.

2. Borrow

Browse our growing list of useful things, from power tools to party gear. Reserve and pay online, then come to MCRLOT to pick up!

3. Use

Keep your borrowed stuff for 7 days, getting on with DIY projects, crafts or whatever else you have planned.

4. Return

Return your item on or before the due date, so that others can borrow it. Or extend your borrow for another 7 days.
