Our Library of Extraordinary Things is a collection of items to help you learn something new, get something accomplished on your to-do list, or try something you may not have at home.

In addition to lots of books about DIY, we have some tools to help around the home.

Cut down on wasteful spending with the help of a Thermal Leak Detector from Black and Decker.

Cut down on costs and find out what appliances are actually worth keeping plugged in. Simply connect appliances to a Kill A Watt, and it will assess how efficient they really are. You can see if it’s time for a new refrigerator or if that old air conditioner is still saving you money.

Going on a road trip, or need an internet connection at a conference? Borrow a Wifi Hotspot to keep connected everywhere you go.

Bike Locks keep your ride secure while you’re out and about. You can even stop at the Drive-up Window and check one out there!

Don’t get caught in the rain; borrow umbrellas from EPL when you’re at the Library and get back to your car dry. Grab one from near the self-check in the lobby.
