Welcome to the Ottawa Tool Library!

What is a tool library you ask?

Simply put, a tool library is a place where you can borrow tools instead of books.

Tool libraries evolved because people wanted to pool resources in a way that would benefit the environment and save space and money – rather than every household owning its own dust-covered drill for that once-a-year job or keeping that pasta maker received as a wedding gift that may never be removed from the box.

The Ottawa Tool Library offers four categories of tools: Hand Tools, Power Tools, Garden Tools, and Kitchen Tools.
