Southside Tool Library

We’re back!

The tool library took a break in April as we didn’t receive the funding we relied on to keep on serving Southsiders’ DIY needs. But good news….the tool library has returned for Tool Tuesdays!

Here's how it works:

  1. Become a member
  2. Reserve tools online by 5pm every Monday
  3. Collect them the next day, Tuesday 3-5pm, and borrow them for up to 3 weeks for a time

How do I get in touch?

The Southside Tool Library can be contacted through South Seeds on 0141 636 3959 or email You can also drop in to South Seeds' base during tool library opening hours (Tuesdays 3-5pm)

How do I become a member?

Set yourself up an account on the online inventory (click 'Create Account' in the top right corner of this page) then drop into the office between 3-5pm on Tuesdays to show us photo ID plus separate proof of name and address. Make a donation if you can afford it and then you're all set to reserve tools.

How do I borrow tools?
