The lending library is available and free for everyone to try on during regular monthly meetings. With a sustaining membership, you can take home a carrier from our lending library. Rentals are for one month, but you are free to return carriers early and exchange for another carrier. This is an excellent way to try new carriers to find what you love and works best without having to buy all of them.
