Cornwall Ontario — The Cornwall tool library will provide this access by making tools and training available to the community and empowering members to transform their homes, landscapes and projects into vibrant spaces that reflect a commitment to sustainability and environmental concern.
“This tool library will act as a community resource that will reduce the burden of improving and greening the places where we live, work and play.” says Rony Macarone, founder of the Cornwall Tool Library.
Our tool library will work like a regular book library in many ways. Tool libraries loan specialized tools to both experienced and inexperienced community members who are interested in repairs and maintenance, building projects and crafts. Remarkably, an average power drill is used for just 12-13 minutes in its lifetime! Tools
like these are examples of products that have high idling capacity and do not need to be owned but rather accessed when needed.
The Cornwall Tool Library will open it’s doors officially on October 11, 2014 and will be located at 10 Fourth St. E., Unit A, Cornwall, Ontario. The Library hours will initially be Wednesdays: 5-7pm, Saturdays: 12pm-3pm, Sundays: 11am-1pm. After school and summer programs in electronics, robotics for kids 7-16, along with seed sharing, gardening and soap making workshops for adults are scheduled to begin in early spring 2015.
The Cornwall Tool Library is the first project started by the Resource-Based Economy Group Inc. (RBEG). The tool library will be run entirely by volunteers.
