Object Library: Home

Crossett Library has many unique items for checkout based on recommendations from the Bennington College Community. New suggestions are always welcome.

What is the Object Library?

The Object Library is a growing collection of practical and creative items that provide additional resources to the College community for making and exploring. 

Head down the stairs from the main floor to the Lower Level and you'll see the Object Library straight ahead, just behind the children's comic books and study area. Each item is available for check out, and special instructions are included if relevant. 

If you would like to make a suggestion for an addition to the Object Library, please email Jared Della Rocca, Director of Library Services: jdellarocca@bennington.edu
