Start a tool library

We’re happy to help any other community interested in starting a tool library of their own. Get started with the must-read page of common questions and links to resources you may find helpful.

Donate tools

Whether you are downsizing, giving away tools that you no longer need, or just need some space, the Edinburgh Tool Library is happy to give your tools a new home! However, we might not be able to accept every tool you have. So, please go through the requirements info below first and get in touch.

Find us

We are currently based in Leith (2 different locations) and Portobello. Our spaces are open on very specific days and times and offer different services and opportunities for you to get involved.
