Nimbin Community Tools & Equipment Library

Nimbin Community Tools & Equipment Library Project is a project to create a tools library for access by community members for the purposes of participating in skills development workshops and undertaking basic repairs and maintenance around the home.

The library also includes equipment from our Food Processing Equipment Library.

The project has a particular focus on social housing tenants, long term unemployed and young people.

The Tools Library is the first step in a larger ‘People’s Shed’ strategy identified in the SNCP to be ultimately located at 7 Sibley Street. The ‘People’s’ Shed’ is a concept which combines the men’s shed, makers faire and hackerspace concepts and will require a new building to be erected.

The aims of the tools library include improving access to tools and equipment, building skills and resilience, creating social inclusion opportunities between older and younger people in particular and improve/maintain existing housing and community assets.

The Tools Library is a new project of NNIC and the People’s Shed is a strategy under the SNCP.

Membership is $27.50  (or $22 for current financial NNIC members) per year.
