About the Library
The Library of STUFF is a community library filled with good quality items that are shared amongst its members. It provides affordable access to items for the Byron Shire community, including individuals, families and Not For Profit organisations including School classes. Whenever possible when we purchase new products we do so locally, supporting and promoting local businesses who stock quality products.

The Library of Stuff operates out of the Mullumbimby Scout Hall on the traditional land of the Bundjalung Nation. We acknowledge and pay respect to the traditional custodians of this land, past, present and emerging, and recognise that sovereignty was never ceded.

Where & When
The Library is located at the Mullumbimby Scout Hall, on the corner of River Terrace and Burringbar Street in Mullumbimby.

We have Summer & Winter opening hours that change with daylight savings.

Saturday  Summer  9-11am  Winter  10-12pm

Thursday Summer  4-6pm  Winter 3-5pm

Tuesdays are new and from 8-10.  We’re not sure yet whether this will change with the clocks yet.

Once you are a member please subscribe for updates to our emails as this is imperative to getting up to date information about any changes to the Library’s operation.  Opening hours changes will also be posted on Socials.

The Library of STUFF is a project of Mullum Cares Incorporated. A not for profit organisation that was founded in 2016 to inspire and enable resource conservation in the Northern Rivers.  You can see all things Mullum Cares at mullumcares.com.au.    

The inspiration for the Library of Stuff name came from Annie Leonard’s Story of Stuff mini documentary that details the detrimental effects of increasing consumption of low-quality consumer goods. With cheap, less durable options available, more expensive, longer lasting goods are being purchased less and less and the impact is evident in the increasing volume of waste our communities are producing and climate change.  The majority of emissions generated are directly related to the extraction, distribution and disposal of goods for human consumption.

Our Stories

The story of the Gerni

The trailer

The trailer was a big item for us to invest in. But we thought it was important for our members to have access to a low-cost trailer for camping, moving house, transporting big materials around, etc. We added it a little over a year ago and it has been borrowed more...
