Handy Edmontonians plan to open city's first tool library

Wednesday, February 10, 2016

Edmontonians will soon be able to add tools to the list of items available for checking out from the library, thanks to a new non-profit initiative in the works. When up and running, the Edmonton Tool Library will operate similarly to a public library. Similar libraries have already opened in Toronto, Vancouver and Calgary, but co-founder Leslie Bush came up with the idea of opening an Edmonton edition while he was renovating his new condo and grew tired of the cost and inconvenience that came with tracking down the required tools.
