Growing and sharing more. Our ‘wish list’

We want to continue growing our supply of tools so that our members (and you!) have access to bigger, better and a more diverse inventory so that more projects are possible. From wood working, we are now expanding to automotive tools, kitchen tools, sewing machines, a ‘facilitation/workshops’ library (in partnership with Happy City) and more. 

Below is our wish list. We would greatly appreciate a donation. If you donate a tool in List A, you get a free ‘Maker’ Level membership - that’s a $75 value which gives you access to our whole inventory (including the item you donate!). If you donate an item from List B, you receive a $25 discount on any membership level.

We can pick up your donation, or you can drop off between the following hours at 151 Empire Avenue (remember, our entrance is on the Bonaventure Ave side of the building)

Tues 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Weds: 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Thurs: 2:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Saturday: 9:00 am -1:00 pm

Please e-mail us at stjohnstoollibrary@gmail.com or call us at (709) 771 4582 if you have donations to make, questions to ask, or otherwise. During our open hours, your best bet is to call 754-8665
