Lending Library

The South Dundas Sports Lending Library gives residents of South Dundas an opportunity to access a wide variety of sporting equipment, absolutely FREE!

Originally, with the help of The Ontario Trillium Foundation, the Municipality of South Dundas established the Sports Lending Library to eliminate barriers that may prevent individuals from participating in sports and leisure activities and to encourage residents to lead active, healthy lifestyles. In 2022, South Dundas Recreation was the successful recipient of the Canada Healthy Communities Initiative grant funded by the Government of Canada to expand the equipment in the Library.
