Brisbane Tool Library

Tools for a circular economy

Brisbane Tool Library is Queensland's first library of things. 

Since 2017, our tool library encourages people to borrow hand and power tools, and other equipment, such as camping and sport gear. 

Based on a circular economy, we are building a more sustainable society, reducing consumption and waste going to landfill.  

How it works - 3 simple steps

Thinking of a meaningful gift? You've found it! 

A gift membership would allow your friends and family members to borrow thousands of items all year long - by gifting them access to the tool library, you are gifting them unlimited experiences!
