Fairfax County Public Library (FCPL) has long been known for providing books and, in the last twenty or so years, digital books, digital audiobooks, and streaming videos. The library also has a Library Of Things. Formally known as Realia, a Library of Things (LoT) is a collection of items for loan that expands the boundaries of traditionally defined library materials. A Library of Things fits into the concept of the “sharing economy.” It allows library customers hands on experience with a variety of items or maybe to try something out to decide if it is something they want to own for themselves.
