Special Projects Volunteer

Like to build, organize, and sort?
Social media savvy? Graphic design skills? Want to teach a workshop?  We are able to facilitate many ways for you to help; from Library improvement projects, inventory sorting, or joining one of our operational teams to keep the Library on track.

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.

Training is provided via our Workshop Basics class to ensure tool comfort.

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. 

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.
