To aid in stopping the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we have closed all public facing services of the Glasgow Tool Library until further notice. We will use this page to keep you up to date on any developments in response to the situation.

Some practicalities:

  • Closure of the tool library service point and all workshops/events effective as of w/c 16th March 2020
  • Borrowed tools can be returned when we reopen. All late fees will be waived and tools renewed in the meantime.
  • You can still sign up the the tool library whilst we are closed through our online portal here. Any new members that have signed up during our closure will need to visit the tool library when we are open to activate their membership – head here for more information on signing up.
  • If you have any questions we will still be contactable via or via our facebook page.

We are monitoring the advice from the Scottish Government closely to assess when it is safe for us to reopen. As an entirely voluntary organisation this may take us longer than other tool libraries. Please be patient whilst we make sure the tool library is the safest possible environment for all of our volunteers and our community.
