Welcome to the London Thing Library. A space where Londoners share and learn together.
Just like a library is a place where you can borrow books, a Thing Library (also known as a library of things or a tool library) is a place where you can borrow things.
Our vision is to reduce waste and facilitate skill-sharing among community members to build resilience and belonging.
Thing libraries have been around for many years, and there are hundreds of them around the world, including in Toronto, Guelph, and Kitchener-Waterloo.
In April 2022, a Thing Library was launched in London, Ontario. The library includes a variety of things, such as gardening tools, kitchen tools, home renovation tools, and more!
