Give your items a second life!

Carlton Kitchen Library is committed to supporting the circular economy - we recognise that we all don’t need to own everything, especially things that we may only use occasionally! By providing a space for unwanted appliances to find new life, stocking resuable plates, cups and cutlery to support zero waste events and promoting borrowing, the library hopes to act as a space for the sharing of items, ideas and 

We take donations during opening hours, have a look at our wish list to see what we are currently on the hunt for:


We are looking for ongoing volunteers to help with library duty. If you can help us out on Tuesdays

3-6PM or Fridays 9:30-12:30PM let us know!

Library duty includes helping to sign up members, checking in items, loaning out items, keeping our stock in order, maintaining our online database and more. Basic ability to navigate a compute system is helpful but not necessary!

We also need help with out seasonal meals and bi-monthly workshops, so if you have any other skill you wish to offer to the library, please get in touch!
