The loans desk at the Ottawa Tool Library.
The Ottawa Tool Library (OTL) is part of the exploding 'sharing economy' which provides city dwellers access to tools that they might not otherwise have access to, can't afford, or simply do not want to purchase for themselves.
The tool library lends out hand tools and power tools for your DIY projects around the home and garden. Find out how the tool library with its low-cost membership fee eliminates the barrier to inclusion, making it a community hub where people can share their resources whether that means tools, time, space, skills, or ideas, so that everyone becomes more inspired, productive, and empowered.
The tool library now also hosts Ottawa’s first Seed Library and you will find out more about this amazing resource, just in time for spring planting.
