Library of Things Procedure

1. The Library circulates unconventional items and devices through the Library of Things collection. Based on item availability, reservations may be made online by following the check mark below or by calling (631) 360-2480 or in-person at the Reference Desk of one of the four Smithtown Library buildings. The patron making the reservation must check out the item or device using their own card in person at the Reference Desk.
2. Items and devices are available for checkout to Suffolk County adult library cardholders in good standing.
3. Items and devices have varying loan periods. To determine the loan period look at the item description. Fines and replacement charges vary for each item and you are responsible for lost or damaged items and devices that you borrow.
3. Items and devices have varying loan periods. To determine the loan period look at the item description. When you make a reservation for an item, you will specify a pickup date that you would like to borrow the item.  Return dates are based on the item's loan period and the date in which you want to pick up the item.  Return dates will be displayed on the confirmation screen after you make your reservation. You must return the item by the return date specified, even if you pick up the item later than your original scheduled pickup date. The reservation period is fixed and does not change based on pickup date as our standard collection does.
4. Fines and replacement charges vary for each item and you are responsible for lost or damaged items and devices that you borrow.
5. You will be notified by email when your item is ready to be picked up.
