VTL Grand Opening - July 16th!
We are pleased to announce that we are officially opening on July 16th, 2011.
We’ve got a fun celebration planned for the big day – we’ll be running mini workshops on planter box building, bike maintenance, and gardening, as well as doing shop tours, signing up new members, and collecting tool donations. Enjoy live music and a $5 BBQ lunch, all proceeds support the VTL. It’s all happening from 11am - 4pm on Saturday July 16th.
It’s been a busy couple of months since we launched the website and first started talking to the broader community about this project back in March, and we couldn’t have come this far without your positive feedback, the support of our funders and founding members, and all the volunteers who have helped to develop our organization thus far. So come out to celebrate with us and check out our tool collection to get inspired! Please help us spread the word by sharing our blog post
or the facebook event
page with friends and neighbours.

As we've gotten closer to our grand opening date, many people have been asking about what specific tools we're going to have in our library.
In response, we've updated the list and moved it to the front of our website. Check out the list here
and see what we're going to offer to our members in all three tool categories (home repair & renovation, gardening & lanscaping, bike maintenance). Any comments or suggestions related to the tool list can be submitted via this feedback form
. Be sure to leave your contact information if there's anything you'd like us to follow up on.
