In South London people have started borrowing rather than buying. They're saving space, money, and engaging with their community. This podcast tells their stories.

Compassion and perception rolled into one delightful package.
The Library of Things is a simple concept, but what it achieves is far broader than loaning things out. Maria Passingham gets to the heart of what The Libraray means to the local community and how it's combating loneliness and isolation through building relationships full of generosity, compassion and enthusiasm. Quirky, profound and gently amusing, this engaging and beautifuly produced new podcast will have you wiping away a tear and smiling in tandem, while wondering how you can start something similar in your own neighbourhood. I can't wait for the next episode!
Library of things is a fantastic concept and I look forward to hearing and learning more about its benefits to the community
An amazing look at the sharing economy in London. Rare to see these stories documented in such a manner. Shirt and punchy which makes it even easier to digest.
