Transition Linlithgow Tool Library

Welcome to the Transition Linlithgow Tool Library!

We are a community resource in Linlithgow providing members with access to tools and equipment for DIY, woodworking, decorating, gardening and more. The majority of our inventory has been donated by other members and individuals from the local community.

Please feel free to browse our inventory.

To find out more about Transition Linlithgow visit our website at www.transitionlinlithgow.org.uk and follow the Transition Linlithgow Tool Library on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

Become a Tool Library Member

Membership applications pack's can be downloaded from our website and handed into our workshop at Unit 5 Braehead Business Units, Braehead Road, Linlithgow, EH49 6EP. Alternatively, you can sign up online.

There are two ways to become a full member of the Transition Linlithgow Tool Library:

Donate Some Tools

If you would like to earn 6 months FREE membership then please bring along any tool donations to Unit 5 on Braehead Road or contact library@transitionlinlithgow.org.uk about organising a collection (subject to travel distance from our premises).

Donate Some Money

The suggested donation is £20 for a years membership. However, it's more important to us that the local community has easy access to the tools they need, so if £20 is more than you can afford we ask you pay only what you can.

Full membership is then activated after showing photo ID and a recent proof of current address OR 2 recent proofs of current address. You will not be able to reserve any items within MyTurn until full membership has been granted. If you have any problems you can contact library@transitionlinlithgow.org.uk

How Does The Tool Library Work?

After your FULL membership has been granted you will be able to reserve tools through MyTurn. Simply login and pick your item and collection date.

Please note that we prepare tool reservations in advance and some of our tools are stored off-site. Order before 1pm on you day of collection to guarantee your reservation. If you're not sure which tools you need for a specific job then contact us or pop in for a chat and some friendly advice! If we don't know the answer to will find someone who does.

Collect

Come along to your chosen collection date and your item will be waiting for you! There will usually be some volunteers kicking about working on various projects so feel free to stay for a chat and a cup of tea.

Return

After you have finished with your item bring it back to the next in clean, working order ready to be borrowed again. If you need a bit more time you can extend your reservation on MyTurn or contact library@transitionlinlithgow.org.uk. In special circumstances arrangements can be made to return tools outside a normal tool borrowing session, get in touch for details.
