Newtown Tool Library - watch this space!
A new tool library is coming to Newtown! Based in the community centre, this tool library will be open to community members to borrow tools for a small annual membership. Right now we're on the hunt for tools to add to our small but growing collection. If you have tools - from hammers to wheelbarrows - in good working order that you'd like to donate, email us! We'll also accept financial donations so that we can have a wider range of tools on offer.
