At this year’s annual Porch Sale, the Ottawa Tool Library will offer you the chance to de-clutter your garage, basement, workroom and shed. This local not-for-profit organization works in a similar way to a public library, but instead of lending books, it provides unlimited access to a growing collection of tools, for a $50 yearly membership. This allows the community to share resources sustainably from the library’s 300+ inventory.
