After a long summer of renovations, the Institute for Resource-Based Economy (IRBE) is proud to announce the opening of a Tool Library in Toronto!
A Tool Library is like a library, but rather than books, it lends tools and machines to design or repair items.
This approach lowers the unnecessary consumption of tools, such as a drill that is used a few hours in a year, reduces the consumption of resources to build them, saves on shipping and transport, and spreads the collaborative philosophy and thriftiness.
With a small annual subscription (from $50 to $100) members can take advantage of the full range of tools. These subscriptions can also be deducted through free hours of volunteer work.
The Tool Library contains many courses that teach a variety of skills, such as how to build a 3D printer, how to assemble a PC, how to install Linux, etc. Imagination is the only limit!
The space of this Tool Library is three times larger and includes an on-site Makerspace with a 3D printer and a woodworking shop fully stocked. Now you can build your dream projects on the spot instead of buying them at the superstore.
