Welcome to the Tool Lendery, Christchurch Central – where you can borrow tools instead of buying them!

We are a tool library, which works similar to a regular library. Become a member for free, and for a small fee, borrow all sorts of tools that you don’t own yourself for use at home.

We’re taking a short break over Christmas and New Years

Please note we’ll be closed for a period over the Christmas break.

Our last day for 2019 will be Saturday 21st December (only open for returning items, no new hires), and then the first day back will be Wednesday 15th January, 2020.

So please be aware if you are trying to make a booking over this time, our online system won’t let you!
