Residents of Terrace now have free borrowing access to musical instruments, sporting equipment, a sewing machine, a GoPro, and — coming soon — power tools, all at their public library. TPL’s new inventory joins smaller objects already in circulation such as binoculars, games, and raspberry Pi kits.
“Geography, size, and economic constraints are the principal drivers of our community’s needs, so we wanted to address as many of these as possible,” says board chair Melanie Wilke. “We wanted to be sure that whatever we did, it would be a high value offering that kept the library fresh and relevant.”
