Help us double the impact of our Library of Things
We did it
On 29th June 2023 we successfully raised £1,760 ( + est. £430.00 Gift Aid ) with 37 supporters in 42 days

Help us open the Library of Things three days a week so more people can save resources by sharing stuff rather than buying.

Project by SHARE Oxford

At SHARE Oxford, we're dedicated to reducing resource usage, doing our bit to cut Oxfordshire's 302,000 tonnes of household waste and helping our community tackle the climate crisis.

Since opening in 2019, our Library of Things has grown fast, with a stock of more than 600 Things, and made more than 3100 hires, each of which has helped someone do something they couldn't, or saved them buying unnecessary stuff, and of course saved them money.

Our biggest opportunity to reach more people is to be more accessible by opening more days every week. (We're currently just open Thursday afternoon and Saturday morning).

To ensure we offer a quality, safe experience for all our customers, we have a paid, trained member of staff managing all shifts, supported by volunteers. This crowdfunder will give us enough funds to take on an additional member of staff, to open three days a week, helping more people to share.

Our ambition is that, within a year, this extra day's opening together with a big splash on marketing will double the number of hires we make every month. If we succeed, the Library of Things should become financially self-sustaining, supported entirely by our wonderful community.
