The Halifax Tool Library is a 100% volunteer run organization!

We are always looking for new volunteers with a variety of skills who would like to help keep our community service up and running. Fill out the volunteer sign up form below or email us at [email protected] if you’d like to get involved.

Tool Librarian Volunteer

Help the Halifax Tool Library stay open and available to our members. You are able to commit to a minimum of two shifts per month at the HTL. You’ll be responsible for greeting current and future members, explaining our policies, and checking out tools. 

Fixer Volunteer

Help the Halifax Tool Library fix its broken tools. You’ll be responsible for examining our broken tools, figuring out what is wrong with them, and fixing them if possible. You will also be responsible for doing regular maintenance. 

Workshop Manager

Our Workshop Managers help supervise our workshop and endeavor to provide the safest environment for everyone in the space. Managers must have experience and knowledge of the power tools in our workshop and our safety procedures. These individuals share project experience and frequently mentor our members as they undertake their DIY projects. First Aid certification is a plus.

Special Projects Volunteer

Like to build, organize, and sort? Social media savvy? Graphic design skills? Want to teach a workshop? We’ll find the right opportunity for you!

Board member

The Halifax Tool Library is overseen by a Board of Directors. We elect a new board (President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary, Members at Large) at our Annual General Meeting.
