The Toronto Tool Library is exactly as it sounds: like a book library, but for tools! We have an extensive inventory of tools to help you with gardening, lawn care, home renovation and maintenance, bicycle repair and so much more. With the launch of The Sharing Depot, we’ve now added camping gear, board games, party supplies, children’s toys and sports equipment to our inventory.

We now have over 10,000+ items available to loan through our library across three locations in the city of Toronto.

What type of borrower are you?

Based on feedback from our community of borrowers, we’ve created four membership options to suit your needs. You can now choose between Basic Tool Library, Basic Sharing Depot, Twice the Fun Combined or High Five Combined. The following factors will help you determine which membership option is right for you:

  • Do you want access to the Tool Library, Sharing Depot or both?
  • What length of time would you like to borrow an item for?
  • How many locations do you need access to?
  • Do you want the option to renew your items?

Memberships can be purchased online below or in person at any of our three locations. If cost is a barrier we offer a pay-what-you-can option (please feel free to get in touch with us at contact@irbe.org for more information). For general information and questions, please read our FAQ page, as well as our benefits & fees page.
