Circulating Tools and Other Unique Items
Online Webinar

Thursday, Nov. 21, 1:30 - 2:00 PM (CST)
or call 701-328-4622.

Presenter: Janet Anderson, Director of the Minot Public Library
 

Libraries have been circulating “non-traditional” items since at least the 1800s so it’s no surprise that North Dakota libraries are embracing unique collections. In 2017, the Minot Public Library (MPL) was approached by volunteers with the AmeriCorps VISTA Program about providing a tool library and since MPL had experience circulating unique items such as tablets, robots, video games and more, the Library staff jumped on board. The MPL tool library was not just about being trendy though. The goal of the VISTA program is to promote resiliency and the purpose of the tool library is to help people become more resilient which was especially important in Minot following the 2011 flood. The MPL Tool Library officially opened in March of 2018 and has drawn a lot of attention and provided for some great learning experiences. In this webinar, MPL Director, Janet Anderson, will describe the work that went into opening a tool library and share some of the important lessons the staff have learned.
