(sustainable living)The library of things- 30 days of daily writing (3)


You’ve probably never heard of it, and it sounds kind of stupid.

But the library of things is really quite a remarkable invention.

Instead of books, it is a library of things. Check in and check out, then return with either a fixed sink, a hoovered floor, or a digitally documented trip to the sea all without having to pay a cent for the items needed for any of the above.

Why has our society not thought of this sooner?

Oh right, the joys of capitalism.

So, if kids and adults in Sacramento can essentially borrow GoPros and 3d printing machines, what would happen if we extend that to other communities?

As a case study, how about we look at a community close to my heart- the university.

Wouldn’t that be a grand idea?
