Members of the tool library are able to borrow up to seven tools a week from our library’s inventory.

Memberships cost $50 to $100, and are valid for one year from the date of purchase.

All Library members who wish to reserve tools will require a user account on MyTurn, our online inventory tool.

Bring your ID when picking up an item from the Library!

Buying a membership is easy, with a few options:

  1. Come see us in person during our open hours — get your membership (pay on a sliding scale between $50-$100) and the item you’d like to borrow in one stop.
  2. Purchase your membership online with a credit card. Online memberships are charged at $75:
    • Create a MyTurn account here. MyTurn is our online inventory tool – every member needs a MyTurn user account to reserve items online.
    • Click Create Account in the upper right corner.
    • MyTurn will ask you to read and sign the Member’s Agreement & Tool Use Policy, as well as the Liability Waiver Form as part of your signup. These are your Terms and Conditions — and include details on late fees, or lost/damaged items.
    • Now you’ve got your account basics down – get the membership! Select General Membership Self Purchase. Your membership and ability to reserve tools will not be complete without this step.

    • Check out our Video about the online signup process.

If cost is ever a factor in being able to access the Library, please talk to us.

Give someone the gift of over 1400 tools by choosing between our 1-year or exclusive 3-month gift memberships. Our packages below include sweaters or branded tote bags – or just the memberships alone.

Our heavyblend crewneck sweaters are black or grey, with two logo alternates (click here for sizing). Choice between two logo alternates are first-come first-serve upon pickup at the Tool Library (as inventory allows). Sweaters and totes can be picked up at the Victoria Tool Library during business hours; if this doesn’t work for you, send us an email to arrange something more convenient.
