Peterborough Tool Library – New at Endeavour
The Endeavour Centre is now more than just a sustainable building school! In June, we also opened the Peterborough Tool Library.
A tool library is like a typical library, but for tools instead of books. The Peterborough Tool Library allows community members to borrow from a large inventory of power and hand tools and take those tools home to use them.
Endeavour director Jen Feigin had the idea to start the tool library, and she and her team of dedicated volunteers got the library up and running with an Indiegogo campaign that pre-sold memberships. They’ve been running the library for over 6 months now, with new members joining all the time. There is a dedicated group managing tool repairs and maintenance, and the inventory is constantly expanding.
For just $50 a year members can start borrowing tools… undertaking their own building and repair projects.
The Peterborough Tool Library is a community resource that will support independence, creativity, and sharing in our community!
