Need a tool? Libraries lending more than books

In a number of communities across the U.S., it’s possible to borrow tools, musical instruments, fishing poles and much more from the local public library. The trend expands the traditional role of the library as a community resource for free knowledge. Libraries see the programs as a new way to offer residents a chance to learn, just not necessarily with a book. “It doesn’t make sense to buy it and then to have to store it,” said Mandarino.
