Join us as we celebrate International Women’s Day, we will be inviting handy women from the Ottawa Community to provide free tool safety and home repair demos.
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, power tools, garden tools, and kitchen tools. 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 also meet Seed Librarian Karen Moore from the Ottawa Horticultural Society who has set up this amazing resource, just in time for spring planting.
Come and see our vast inventory (1,000+) and find out how the tool library and the seed library can help you tackle the projects you want to accomplish.
