Are you sick of single use purchases?
Do you need a mallet or disco ball, but will probably only use it once?
Then what, it lives in your garage with tons of other tools and items that you only ever needed for that one project or event.
At Buy Nowt LS6 they are tackling this issue with a library of things.
It’s like a normal library but with items instead of books. They have loads of useful items available to borrow from DIY tools, camping gear, costumes, gardening tools to arts and crafts, board games to cooking equipment.
Everything in the library has been donated by the lovely local community and can be borrowed by creating a membership online or pop in to visit us when we are open, remember to bring some ID with you. All memberships and loans are pay as you feel and are open to anyone in the LS6 community (E.g. live, work, study, worship, volunteer in LS6 etc). Buy Nowt LS6 are a not for profit CIC, 100% volunteer ran with any money received supporting the running of the library.
So, if you have an item in your garage or under-stairs cupboard that you have not used for ages, why not pop it into Buy Nowt LS6 so someone else in the community can use it instead of buying new again and again and again.
Find them through the 3rd blue door down, on Chapel Street. Headingley Methodist Church, Leeds, LS6 3HZ.
Open Friday 4-6pm Saturdays 1-4pm.
View the current inventory and create your membership at www.buynowtls6.com or pop in and see them.
They would love to be able to open their doors more often and to share more things, so please get in touch if you can spare some time to help or have anything to donate.
