Why shop when you can share?

Need a tool for a one-off job and don't want to buy it? Want to try out a new
tool to see if you like it? No space in the cupboard for more things?

Become a Member of Glasgow Tool Library to borrow items, like power tools, lawnmowers, wallpaper strippers, pizza ovens, games and MORE!

All memberships give you access to almost 1,000 items worth over £10,000! As a not-for-profit charity, all membership fees get reinvested back into supporting the tool library, our volunteer and educational programme, reducing waste, promoting sharing as alternative to consumerism.
