Welcome to the Gabriola Tool Library!

Supporters say, “What a good idea!”

We are a non-profit society formed to promote the sharing of tools and skills with the aim of creating a more resilient society and livable planet. Our shelves are stocked with hundreds of DIY and home maintenance tools for you to borrow. Come down to our tool library shed at the Commons and chat with a friendly volunteer. Join up and you can borrow the the tools you need.

The GTL first opened in 2018 on the grounds of the Gabriola Commons through an agreement with the Commons Foundation. We acknowledge that the Gabriola Tool Library is located on unceded territory of the Snuneymuxw people, who have been stewards of this land since time immemorial. We hope we can contribute in a small way towards sustaining the environment and supporting a healthy community.
