BUCHANAN — Books, audiobooks, games and movies will soon be joined by a wide variety of nontraditional library items for patrons to check out at Buchanan District Library, 128 E. Front St.

“This is a natural extension of what libraries already do, and will allow us to better meet the needs of our patrons,” Library Director Meg Paulette said in a news release. “A ‘Library of Things’ is a way for our community to share resources and expand the boundaries of what a library usually offers.”
