How To Join

Anyone over 18 is welcome to join the Sydney Library of Things (TSLoT).

TSLoT is membership based - $85 annually ($60 Concession), $50 six monthly ($36 concession) and $30 quarterly ($22 concession). You only pay for your membership, not for borrowing items. The fees go to maintaining the library, tools, insurance and building the collection.

Members can borrow up to 5 items, for a loan period of 2 weeks. Items can be renewed for a further two weeks if they haven't been reserved by others. 


It’s easy to sign-up:

  1. Click on Create Account above right, and complete the two step process.
  2. Fill in your details, agree to terms and conditions and confirm your email address.
  3. Purchase the right membership for you via our secure Stripe payment gateway.
  4. And please always bring in a government-issued photo ID to TSLoT when borrowing.

Reserving Items

Once you have chosen the items to reserve from the TSLoT website, you must go to the cart and submit it.

Check this MyTurn cart instructional video on how to navigate this. (Thank you to Toolo in the Blue Mountains for this instructional video).

Your reservation is only complete when you have received a confirmation email.
