Welcome to the Gabriola Tool Library!

Our supporters say, “What a good idea!”

We’re a non-profit society with a mandate to promote the sharing of tools and skills with the aim of creating a more resilient society and a livable planet. Our shelves are stocked with hundreds of DIY and home maintenance tools for you to borrow. Come down to the tool library shed, chat with a friendly volunteer, become a member, and take home the tools you need.

The GTL opened officially in October 2018 on the grounds of the Gabriola Commons having signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Foundation. We would like to acknowledge that the Gabriola Tool Library is located within the unceded territory of the Snuneymuxw people who have been stewards of this land for generations. We hope we can continue that tradition by doing our small part towards sustaining our environment and supporting our community.
