Belfast Tool Library is the first tool lending library in Northern Ireland. Tool Libraries work just like any other library. You become a member and then you can borrow tools.

We’re not-for-profit, and are applying to become a charity.

The team behind BTL are all volunteers. We’re from lots of different backgrounds, but share the same passion to build community, and to share skills and resources. There’s definitely a few tool geeks among us too – but you would expect that, right?

We’re located at Vault Artist Studios, off the Newtownards Road and close to the centre of Belfast

Our goals are simple. We want to:

  • Promote DIY, making and repair skills through the sharing of tools
  • Make Belfast a more sustainable city
  • Create opportunities for learning and development
  • Bring people together, regardless of who they are or where they come from

Sounds great, right?

We’ll be accepting applications from members very soon. You can find out more by joining our mailing list here
