The Brisbane Tool Library Inc. will allow users to share resources, goods, services, and even skills. Our “library of things” will loan out all kinds of stuff that people may want to use once in a while, but not own. It will allow people who cannot afford to own their tools, or who simply do not want to buy new ones, to use them. Some items can be loaned out while other can be used on site.

The main goal is to go beyond the material consumption of the current “take, make and dispose” system. Recycling, re-using and re-purposing is possible, a circular economy means that products no longer have a life cycle with a beginning, middle, and end. The new products’ life will be “from start to start”. We would like to build a fundamentally different way of thinking showing that some goods that people perceive as waste, can be a resource for other people or projects.

Moreover, this project will allow people to save money on products and services that might otherwise have been un- or under-used.


Our goals are: 

  • Enhance environmental sustainability, decreasing material consumption and waste going to landfill
  • Integrate disadvantaged people & create social stability
  • Create a cultural shift and move toward a real sharing economy

It's not just about hammers and drills, the Brisbane Tool Library offers much more! Occasional cooking appliances, fun & camping stuff ---> Here a pic of when your car becomes a pick up/storage space 😉
Keep contacting us to DONATE tools, power tools, camping & sport gear!

Thanks for the tools received so far and a special thanks to all our volunteers that every week pick them up from all around Brisbane 👍🏽👊🏻
