Adopting a tool will support the Edinburgh Tool Library & our community to build a shared future. Help our tools shine from £5 per month.
IN TOOLS WE TRUST
We believe in inspiring & enabling anyone to become a maker – giving them tools for life. We do this by being actively inclusive, building community projects & supporting those who need help. And none of this would be possible without our large & diverse library of tools. From special purchases to public donations, each tool has a unique story to tell. Now, you can help our tools really shine. Ready? Let’s begin…
Adopt one of our tools. Which one will you support?
Meet our new Adopt a Tool initiative. Think of it like adopting a whale – there’s no chance of getting wet. Your symbolic adoption will support the upkeep & maintenance of our tools as they’re shared amongst the community to do amazing things. From as little as £5 a month, you can guarantee George the Router or Louisa the Table Saw a long and happy life – so they can get to work helping us build a shared future for everyone
Adoptions are great for tool lovers, sustainably focused folk and are awesome gift ideas
How does it work?
Each one of our tools plays a part in supporting the local community – from our Tools for Life program which mentors and trains disadvantaged youth, to our most borrowed tools which not only help houses become homes, but help the planet with their carbon footprint too. Whether it’s your way of giving back, a gift for a tool-loving companion, or to create a legacy for your office, choose the tool you want to adopt, pick a pricing plan that suits you and together, let’s build a shared future.
