KLOTH, the first Library of Things has arrived in Falmouth and Penryn, situated at the Old Gentlemen's Hut in Penryn on Quay Hill.

You can borrow lots of useful things from Kloth, Find out more about how it works.

What is a Library of things?

It’s a very simple, but beautifully powerful idea.

A Library of Things works like a normal library. But instead of borrowing books, you can borrow tools, kitchen equipment, camping gear in fact, pretty much anything. The kind of things that you might not own, only use occasionally, or perhaps, can’t afford.

We want to move away from the idea that in order to use things we have to own them and having a Library of Things means that everyone in a community shares stuff as and when they need to, instead of storing things away in homes.
