Project updates

We’re introducing a ‘Library of Things’ at Beaumaris Library for our community to borrow, enjoy and return a variety of items instead of buying them.

The Library of Things encourages sustainable living practices and promotes the circular economy by providing access to popular products that may be needed for one-off jobs but are rarely used afterwards.

Consultation closed 17 December 2023. The Library of Things is expected to launch in March 2024.
