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.
We normally open at the Hall on Thursday’s 3-5 & Saturday’s 10-12 but during lockdown are home delivering – see the home page for all details.
COVID Conscious | Please check your emails or our socials for updates on any disruptions to the Library’s operation due to restrictions.
The Library of STUFF is a community library filled with good quality items that are shared amongst its members.
The Library of STUFF is a project of Mullum Cares Incorporated. It provides affordable access to quality goods 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 inspiration for the Library came from Annie Leonard’s Story of Stuff 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.
The Library is located at the Mullumbimby Scout Hall, on the corner of River Terrace and Burringbar Street in Mullumbimby.
On our Inventory page you can filter the assets by categories including: Camping, Games (then split these between Board Games and Sports and Outdoor equipment), Tools (and drill down to select Gardening, Hand Tool, Power Tool Cordless and Power Tool Corded), Events (divided between Catering Items and Non Catering Items), Kitchen/Food related (ice cream maker, pasta making machines, dehydrators, etc), Random (hair straightener, clippers, moon boot, crutches, measuring wheel, suitcases and more) and recently we have begun to add carefully selected books.
