Borrow Instead of Buying.  

Whether you're a veteran DIYer or thinking about getting started on your very first project, the St. John's Tool Library is here to help. We are a non-profit tool lending service for people who want to create, make, build, and grow. Your membership gives you access to a broad inventory of equipment - from lawn mowers to power drills, from stud finders to table saws, from gardening shovels to soldering irons - we've got you covered.

Your library membership starts as low as $49.99 a year.

Start your project knowing that all the support, advice and tools you'll need comes with being a member. While most of our tools have no additional fees, for some tools we charge a small fee. This helps us replace things like blades, batteries and to make sure that all our tools are in top shape.

WHY A TOOL LIBRARY?

 
Saves your hard earned money, reduces waste, brings people together, and makes great things happen for our city and neighbourhoods. That’s what this Tool Library and its members do.
— Ian Froude, St. John's Tool Library Founder
 

Our friends, partners, sponsors and board members have helped make the St. John's Tool Library possible.
