Rent a 'thing' from Kankakee's Library of

By Tiffany Blanchette

The Kankakee Public Library's new Library of Things catalog is filled with 17 objects available for rental.

The “things" range from kitchen items and tools, to instruments and games, all with a rental time of seven days. Currently, a renter can renew the lease once, unless the item is on hold or requested by another patron.

Vicki Forquer, Kankakee Public Library’s adult services supervisor, said the library also is looking to expand the catalog, but is seeking local input on items to add. Other libraries Forquer spoke to said the kitchen items were most popular, but she wants to tailor the Library of Things to Kankakee County’s needs.

Suggestions can be sent to vforquer@lions-online.org. Also available for rent to Kankakee Public Library card holders are 10 internet hotspots, which are frequently booked.
