NEWS: We are offering a special membership for our neighbours in Priory Court! £10 / year! 



We are a community tool lending library with the mission to create a community of sharing tools and skills, using our collective responsibility to take care of one another and our planet.

The library project was initiated by residents of William Morris Big Local, made possible by William Morris Big Local funding & is run by Forest Recycling Project as well as volunteers from Priory Court.
