Library of Things

The Library of Things at the Hood River County Library is a service that offers things for patrons to checkout. The collection supports lifelong learning and creativity by providing the physical tools necessary to explore new areas of interest and learn new skills.

The Hood River County Library has always been a place where you can come to learn anything you are curious about – now we are offering you the tools to satisfy and encourage that curiosity. We are kicking off this collection with home kitchen and preservation tools from the Oregon State University Extension Service.
