Need to borrow a ukulele, some yarn or a DVD player? Head to the library

I love libraries. I really do. They’re the best. I’m proud to say I’ve had a library card in every place I’ve ever lived in, including my college town and the town where my grandparents have their summer house. I am all about libraries.

Actual footage of me

Yet even I was pleasantly surprised to learn just how much stuff you could borrow from a library, specifically Lebanon’s public libraries. You can borrow all the things!!

Looking for a metal detector? What about a digital projector? Will you be needing a pressure washer any time soon? Don’t worry, the Leb librarians can hook you up. (Super neat, right?)

Raise your hand if you had no idea you could check out games, tools and other fun things besides books/audiobooks, DVDs or CDs from the Lebanon libraries.

Yeah, me neither. And boy, have I been missing out. ¡No mas!
