The Waiuku Tool Library is an initiative from the Waiuku Community Workshop. The idea is that you can borrow tools as you would normally borrow a book from the library through a low cost subscription membership.
From an angle grinder, to a biscuit joiner.. if you need it, we should have it!
So those broken items you may have sent to landfill in the past, you could now fix and re purpose. How fantastic is that?
A huge thanks to Auckland Council for a Waste Minimisation and Innovation grant which allowed us to establish the Tool Library in the workshop space at Waiuku Zero Waste. This has allowed us to purchase tools, which will be supplemented by donated tools from the public and through Waiuku Zero Waste.
The Waiuku Tool Library is located at Waiuku Zero Waste, 5 Hosking Place, Waiuku – Inside the old shop building. Currently it will be open on:
Wednesday from 1 – 4pm.
$25 – 3 month Membership
$100 – Annual membership
You can volunteer with Waiuku Tool Library and get free membership! Get in touch here to become a volunteer.
Members can borrow up to 5 tools for 7 days at a time.
Some larger items may attract an additional charge or bond for hire.
