LIBRARY OF THINGS
In the past few years, the Millvale Community Library has expanded to loaning non-traditional (non-book) items to patrons across Allegheny County. We are proud to be considered a Library of Things!
What is a Library of Things? According to Wikipedia, a Library of Things “describes non-traditional collections that are being loaned by libraries, and can include kitchen appliances, tools, gardening equipment and seeds, electronics, toys and games, art, science kits, craft supplies, musical instruments, recreational equipment, and more.”
Our Library offers the following non-traditional items for loan:
- Tools of all kinds
- WiFi Hotspots
- Radon Detectors
- Air Quality Monitors
- Musical Instruments
- Plant and Vegetable Seeds
- and more!
We also have a growing digital collection, which includes decades’ worth of Millvale High School and Shaler Area High School yearbooks!
