Vaughan Public Libraries, in partnership with York Region, has opened a lending facility at the Pierre Berton Resource Library.

The inauguration will take place on September 8 in the presence of Mayor Maurizio Bevilacqua, members of the council and members of the library’s board of directors.

The Lendery was developed in partnership with York Region and is part of York Region’s Waste Management Master Plan or SM4RT Life Plan.

The aim is to create a circular economy with the aim of refurbishing and recycling tools, kitchen equipment, sports equipment, etc.

“Libraries are where you can access a wealth of resources and return them so other patrons can enjoy them. The Lendery fits naturally into this philosophy, and we believe it will help reduce waste. in the city – we would rather see these items flying off our shelves than gathering dust on yours,” Margie Singleton, CEO of Vaughan Public Libraries said in a press release.

To borrow items from the Loan Shop, customers must meet the following criteria:

• Be 18 or older

• Have a valid VPL card

• Complete a Lendery loan agreement with staff

Loan items are available on a first-come, first-served, no-holds-barred basis and can be borrowed for 14 days.
