Weird Stuff You Can Check Out @ Your Library

From NPR (doesn't that make me sound like Carl Kasell): weird stuff that can be borrowed from different public libraries.

Items include fishing poles, snow shoes, garden seeds, pictures for your walls and bridal magazines. Anyone out there in LISNews-land lend other non-book items? If so, please comment below.


Our library checks out Victorian dresses...very unique, I think!

Can I ask..which library is this?

Can men check the dresses out?

Our library checks out a bike tool kit.

ours checks out bike helmets---and various electronics, chargers, and anatomical models.

I don't know that I would want to check out a helmet that others have used. Do any patrons express this concern?

Some rural libraries in Kansas (and probably in some other states) check out pie tins.

I forget which, but there's a library in the CNY Finger Lakes region that loans our fishing poles.
