How you can support us

One of the lovely things about libraries of things, is that because they’re created by donations from the community, each one is unique. They’ll be lovingly cared for and available to all library members for borrowing. 

Please view our wish list then scroll further to the donation form to proceed with your item donation. Love what we do and prefer to support us financially? Please scroll further down and we thank you in advance for your support.

Items need to be clean and in good usable condition. If donating a battery-powered tool, we ask that you supply at least one working battery and the charger. We also appreciate consumable materials for any of the items (eg. sanding belts, nails for nail guns, screws etc). 

If you’re looking to rehome items (and keep them in the circular economy) here’s some links for other options;

We do not accept items that are: petrol powered tools, broken or poor quality equipment, incomplete sets of equipment,
