Introducing the Library of Things

As part of Yarra City Council's Electrify Everything campaign, Yarra Libraries is happy to announce the introduction of the Library of Things. 

The Electrify Everything campaign is a nationally focused campaign designed to help and support residents and businesses with the transition to being all-electric. With energy bills rising, switching to efficient electric appliances can help reduce costs and protect against bill shock and future price rises. Electric appliances are also safer and healthier for our community as they don’t create any indoor pollution like gas does, which carries many health impacts.

To support the campaign, Yarra: 

  • Has created a Go Electric Action Plan template that offers residents a plan and checklist with actions they can take to make the switch to all-electric.
  • Is co-hosting a series of events on how to create an all-electric home, including workshops on induction cooking.
  • Is launching the Library of Things, with home energy efficiency kits, induction cooktops and more, free to borrow to members of Yarra Libraries. 

For more information on the Library of Things and to find out what and how you can borrow, visit our webpage.
