How to become a Tool Library member!
In order to borrow tools you must sign up as a member. Once you are a member, you can borrow whatever you like for one week at a time. You can renew and reserve tools just like the book library.
Sign up for a membership
The membership fee is $30 for a year or $20 for 6 months.
If you are a Wellington Time Bank member, you can pay with 2-time credits.
Our aim is to keep the Tool Library as accessible as possible while still having a small income to cover tool maintenance, repairs and new tools.
Signing up is easy — just click the button below to fill in the form.
We'll need to verify your details and confirm your payment before completing your membership. Please either email or bring in during our opening hours proof of ID, address and payment. Once this is done you will be away laughing and able to make, fix and create to your heart's content!
Become part of the team
The Tool Library runs with the help of volunteers.
