In general: thanks for making this proposal!

One question, as such objects are unknown to me:
is it acting as actual public library (rental is nearly free) or is it rental shop
using "library" for branding/advertisement purposes and there are noticeable fees?

In other words - would fee=no be applicable (or implied) tag?

Can you maybe make photo of such object? And upload it to Wikimedia Commons
under an open license?

or at least to https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Special:Upload

That could be used both on 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Library_of_Things pages and help to explain it for people
unfamiliar with it 
(someone linked image of one somewhere, maybe on Discord, what really
helped to explain what is this - better than text description).


are related, but you clearly need to pay there (unless tagged with fee=no)

I'm a bit stuck for a couple of weeks, I don't know if my idea makes really sense, where I can find some people interested to discuss it or even what should be the next step!
