The Toronto Tool Library and Sharing Depot team are super excited to host this year's Lending Library Symposium. Thinking of starting a Tool Library or Library of Things in your city/town? Want to improve what you're doing and learn from your peers? This is your chance to connect, socialize and learn from each other to help the sharing movement grow worldwide.

The event will take place all weekend, from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon, and the ticket price includes the following:

  • Beverages and snacks on Friday Night
  • Full day conference on Saturday, June 10 includes breakfast, lunch, panels, workshops
  • Big party on Saturday night - Drinks included

We will do our best to get everyone who attends the conference a free place to stay with our volunteer network for Friday, Saturday and, if necessary, Sunday night, please contact Ryan at ryan@irbe.org if you need a place to stay.

Conference Details:

The conference this year will have a combination of talks, panels and breakout workshops. Topics will include:

  • Inventory Management
  • Accounting 101 - Managing the Books and Analyzing Revenue Streams
  • Makerspaces, Workshops and other Revenue Streams
  • Libraries of Things
  • Repairs and Maintenance

Pricing: We have done our best to keep prices as low as we can to encourage as many libraries as possible to join us. Group pricing for 2, 3, and 4 attendees are available at a lower rate. Please contact us if you are unable to afford these fees however please note this event will not make a profit at these prices, our best case is to break-even. Also, for the U.S. folks out there, this is in Canadian Dollars so you get a nice discount these days :) To be transaprent about costs, we have estimated the approximate costs per person as follows:

Venue Rental: $30

Food and Beverage (weekend): $85

Printing/Marketing/Other Admin: $12.50

Thanks everyone and more info to come soon.
