Welcome to the Edinburgh Tool Library!

You'll be able here to browse through our inventory, see what we have. Each tool has a description with loads of useful information (or at least we're aiming towards this! Please feedback if there is anything). Information such as what the tool does, safety gear to wear, other tools to borrow with it.

Opening days and times vary depending on the locations the tools are based in:

  • Meadowbank: FRIDAYS and MONDAYS 15:00 till 19:00
  • Colinton: FRIDAYS 17:00 till 18:30
  • Portobello: THURSDAYS and MONDAYS 17:00 till 20:00

Reservations are not required but if you wish to reserve, we are accepting reservations maximum 4 days in advance of the pickup. Start your reservation by clicking on the ‘Reserve’ button of the tool you would like to reserve. If you can't see the ‘Reserve’, make sure you're logged in first and you've paid for a membership.
