The grand opening of the Leihbar will take place on Sunday, August 1st, between 3 pm and 6 pm in the Quartiersbüro Mackeviertel.
The Leihbar is officially open for borrowing things. The new project in the Quartiersbüro Mackeviertel offers easy access to valuable items that are only rarely needed. The items can be booked on this website and picked up or dropped off at our location during opening hours. The service is free of charge. A small amount of money must be deposited as security until the item is returned.
Michelle Ruesch is thrilled by this service: “There are things that I only need once a year. The idea of sharing is not only good for my wallet, but also for the environment.”
The collection of items that can be borrowed was built up with a call for donations in the neighborhood. Among other things, the growing collection contains tools, gardening equipment, household appliances, games and equipment for sports and leisure.
The idea for the Leihbar Bonn was born out of the second neighborhood conference in the Macke neighborhood in November 2019. The Leihbar pursues both ecological and social goals.
“We are extremely pleased to be able to run our project in the space of the Quartiersbüro. With this new service we aim to both protect the environment and to strengthen the community in the neighborhood. The response so far has been overwhelmingly positive”, says Daniel Appelt, one of the project initiators.
The grand opening of the Leihbar will take place on Sunday, August 1st 2021, from 3 pm to 6 pm in the Quartiersbüro Mackeviertel. After the formal welcoming at 3:30 pm there will be a chance to talk to the team of volunteers over music, coffee and cake.
