Edmonton Tool Library

This week on Terra Informa, we take a trip to the Edmonton Tool Library, a non-profit that launched in January 2017 and it’s located in the Bellevue Community League. The library shelves are full of donated tools, some well-loved and well-worn, while others barely touched. Members can borrow the tools for their art projects, home renovations, yard clean-ups and more. Terra Informers Shelley Jodoin and Lauren Carter explored the tool library and interviewed two of the board members, Robyn Webb and Leslie Bush. They’ll tell you what a tool library is and how it can save you money, reduce your environmental impact and empower you to take on a do-it-yourself project.

Check out their website where you can view the tool catalogue and sign up for volunteer opportunities. You can also follow them on Facebook and on, Instagram, and Twitter.
