Borrow household items instead of buying
Southwark now has a Library of Things at Canada Water Library, where you can borrow useful household items you do not need to use often like carpet cleaners, drills, or projectors.
Instead of buying items you can save money, storage space and help the environment. If you need it, you can also get a discounted membership for 25% off your rental.
There are more than 30 top-quality items available, all tested by expert technicians. To borrow an item you need to reserve it online, and then collect it from self-service lockers at the library.
The council has funded the scheme, to support plans to tackle the climate emergency.
