Collaborative Consumption in Libraries

Here are 3 ways in which you may be able to benefit:

Use Ecomodo to fundraise for your library ..
Good causes on Ecomodo can be any type of not-for-profit group, including libraries! Ecomodo is an effortless and everyday way for supporters of local libraries to fundraise, simply by lending out their own everyday objects, skills or spaces to each other.

Become a 'sharing hub' ..
Help facilitate local lending and borrowing in your neighbourhood by providing a small secure space at your library, where in lenders can arrange to drop an item off for a borrower to pick it up and visa versa.

Become a lender - of not just books!
Ecomodo enables the lending of all sorts of household goods so your library could create it's own 'community shed' containing all sorts of items to lend out, with the proceeds going to your good cause. See if there are items your community would be happy to donate to you and start to fill your shed for free.
