Library of Things

The Woodbridge Library of Things was created to extend the library’s mission of education and personal growth. Our guiding principles for adding items to the collective are to acquire things that educate and satisfy the user’s curiosity, and to save patrons the expense of buying things that might only get limited use.

Woodbridge Town Library Things are only available for pickup at the Woodbridge Town Library.
Please call the information desk at (203) 389-3434 to check on an item’s availability.
