Library Of Things

The Library of Things revolutionized the concept of borrowing by offering patrons access to a wide range of non-traditional items beyond books. In Olds, residents have had access to telescopes, power monitors, tablets, and other technology-based resources since 2012. Responding to the growing demand for practical and sustainable solutions, the library has decided to expand its collection, ensuring residents have access to an even more diverse selection of items.

If you are here, you likely heard that we plan on expanding the Library of Things at the Olds Municipal Library. If you would like to talk about donating any of the below items via monetary or in kind donation, please contact Lesley Moody, Library Manager at
