MORRISTOWN, NJ -  With longer days and nicer weather, the summer is a great time to try something new. Have you ever thought of trying to sew? Have you wanted to look at the night sky through a telescope? Maybe you wanted to try Frisbee golf?

The Morristown Library has a new program called, "Library of Things" that allows Morristown and Morris Township residents the opportunity to try a new hobby, learn something new or play something new before buying it. Items available include a sewing machine, a telescope, a ukulele, binoculars, a mobile LED movie projector, a metal detector, a digital microscope and frisbee golf set.

“The ‘Library of Things’ here at the Morristown & Morris Township Library is a collection of non-book items that our patrons can also borrow to explore something new", said Chad Leinaweaver, Director of the Morristown & Morris Township Library.   "Our Frisbee golf set has been very popular as has been our metal detector (I guess there must be a lot of buried treasure around the area!)".
