Newmarket – The Regional Municipality of York joins Newmarket Public Library and NewMakeIt to host a ribbon cutting ceremony for the grand opening of York Region’s Lendery location at the Newmarket Public Library in the Town of Newmarket.

When:

Wednesday, February 5, 2020

Background:

  • A Lendery is like a library where you sign out items rather than books – things you need at the moment but don’t need to own
  • A Lendery membership lets residents borrow a wide range of items including party supplies, small kitchen appliances, sports equipment or tools
  • The Lendery supports York Region’s SM4RT Living Plan Reuse, Repair and Repurpose strategy to achieve approximately 5% reduction in waste generation by 2031
  • The first Lendery location opened at Miliken Mills Community Centre and Library in the City of Markham in July 2019

The Regional Municipality of York consists of nine local cities and towns and provides a variety of programs and services to 1.2 million residents and 52,000 businesses with over 636,600 employees. More information about the Region’s key service areas is available at york.ca/regionalservices
