Citizens Committee for New York City

The Citizens Committee Lending Library is a resource for grassroots groups around the city to borrow equipment for their projects. We do not loan out equipment to individuals.

Grantees of Citizens Committee are automatically eligible to use the Lending Library. To request a loan, email kwillis@citizensnyc.org. Please include:

  3. Name, phone number, and email of the person who will be responsible for the equipment
  4. Two names, phone numbers, and email addresses of partner individuals or groups who can serve as a reference for your group. (For example, local non-profits, partner gardens, other community leaders. We ask for this information for non-grantee groups as a verification of your group as well as a back-up contact if we are unable to reach you to return the equipment)
