You can arrange to have tools picked up, at curbside, throughout the month of May, officials say
A global pandemic has not stopped ambitious plans to create a new tool library and ‘makerspace’ in Orillia.
The volunteers behind the Orillia Tool Library & Makerspace continue to work on acquiring a space to house tools, to offer programming and provide a space for people to create.
“Due to the current health emergency and restrictions, our progress has slowed a bit, but we are still working behind the scenes to secure a suitable location and grow our inventory of tools that will be available to the public,” said Braden O’Neill, secretary of the enterprise.
Despite that, O’Neill and Matt Thomson, the president of the group behind the initiative, thought now would be an ideal time to have a tool drive and arrange pickups of tools, equipment or machinery.
