The Stuffbrary currently includes:
Bike Locks – Biking to the library? Ask at the service desk to check out a bike lock and keep your ride secure.
Citizen Science – Citizen science is real science done by people like you! You can borrow tools from your library that will help you participate in a specific citizen science project, such as a Sky Quality Meter, an air quality sensor, or a special smartphone lens.
Croquet Sets – Everything you need for a lawn party--mallets, wickets, balls, and instructions all ready to go in a handy duffel bag.
Healthbrary – Check out a Fitbit or blood pressure cuff at the Main Library, and learn more about your health habits.
Hiking Kit – A lightweight backpack with two folding walking sticks, a compass, binoculars, two hiking guides for Phoenix-area hiking trails, and a nature guide to help identify animals, plants, and flowers native to the area. Perfect for enjoying our beautiful outdoors!
Play at the Park Kit – A variety of sports equipment to take to the park with your family or friends. Need to find a place to play? City of Mesa Parks and Recreation can help you locate a great park in your neighborhood.
Telescopes – Check out an Orion Starblast telescope to explore the beauty of the night sky! Currently, three telescopes are available at the Main Library. Telescopes check out for one week and cannot be held or renewed; special checkout procedure required (ask staff for more information).
This project is supported by the Arizona State Library, Archives & Public Records, a division of the Secretary of State, with federal funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
