Why purchase something you only need to use once? Our Beyond Books collection not only provides you with fun and entertaining items to check out, but useful and cost-effective ones as well.

This innovative collection of unusual, fun, and useful items is made possible thanks to the generosity of the Blaine Wiley Family in tribute to Joan M. Wiley. As a child of the Depression, Joan felt you didn’t need to own everything. Her philosophy was “Why buy something when you can borrow it.” We agree, and are therefore very pleased to honor her with this carefully curated collection of items.
