Brunswick Tool Library

Established in 2012, the Brunswick Tool Library has been welcomed by nearby residents in need of tools for small-scale projects and DIY jobs. Focused on providing artists, gardeners and renovators with an affordable way to take on a range of jobs, the entirely volunteer-run Brunswick Tool Library, led by president Karleng Lim, aims to transform the way we own and use tools.
