Next barefoot bowls social – TBA (green closed for Feb)
It was awesome catching up with members and friends of the Library and Mullum Cares at our end of year social at the Mullum Bowlo last December! The upside of our barefoot bowls action getting cut short by rain is that we now have a credit and plan to organise another barefoot bowl social. Make sure you’re subscribed for email updates via our Communicate page so you don’t miss the shout out.

How good is our library! We were given a leg up in 2018 by FRRR pwith a 15K grant and the Byron Region Community College gave us a small space alongside the Repair Cafe in 2019 to open our doors. Since then we’ve received philanthropic funding to pay a co ordinator for a few years but we’re out of funds for a paid person so we are looking for members to step up and ensure the Library of Stuff can meet its regulatory committments and continue to serve its members.
At this time in history we must accept that humans in developed countries have taken far more than their fair share of the planets natural resources. Many of these are still in use in the furniture we cherish, the buildings that we love and the vintage products (like my 2015 apple mac) that are still being well cared for and serving their purpose. The Library of Stuff, and all Libraries of Things, are conservation in action. In addition to saving forests and restoring habit for wildlife we must slow down the reason they were destroyed or are still threatened. Consumption. Production. The never ending deterioration of our relationship with the stuff we need to live happy and healthy lives.
Sharing and caring for items you only use infrequently is a serious way you can reduce your personal footprint and likely have more stuff at your disposal at the same time. There are few better win wins.
Our new Active Member option means when you pay $26 and commit to volunteering regularly to take on one of the many important roles required to run the Library you get 6 months membership instead of 3 and pay half price loan fees. If you have some time (and we mean, can you easily and reliably comit to at least 2 hours a fortnight) and share our passion then there’s never been a more important time to step up and join the volunteer Library of Stuff team made up of Active Members.
Send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org letting us know how much time you can commit regularly over the next 6 months and potentially behond and what you think you’d like to do – if you know.
