Brisbane Tool Library

Tools for a circular economy

In 2017, the Brisbane Tool Library became Queensland's first library of things. Our tool library allows 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.
