Event Rentals

The Hamilton Tool Library is pleased to announce the launch of its new event rentals department. Unlike our other libraries, this is a pay-per-use section, but at prices that are better than you'll find anywhere else. If the item(s) you are looking for are checked out, or if we do not have the item(s) you are looking for, please call us at 289-489-6498--we may have more options for you.

Use the form below to book your items online. You may also come to the tool library in person to reserve items. Please do not call or use Facebook, etc. to book. We are unable to manage those requests.

To book items online:

  1. Choose the date range you would like to borrow the items for in the dropdown menus or in the calendar.
  2. Browse the categories of items below (e.g. "Canopy", "Cinema", etc.)
  3. Click "Book Now" to book for your selected dates, click "Details" to see more information about the item, or click "Availability" to see when the item is available.
  4. After clicking "Book Now", confirm the start and end date and click Continue.
  5. Enter your personal information and click Continue.
  6. Log in to your PayPal account or click "Pay with Debit or Credit Card" to enter your credit card details. Debit payments are not accepted at this time.

A nonrefundable 50% deposit will be taken when you book your item(s). The balance of your payment, applicable taxes, and a security deposit will be due when you pick up your items. Late items are charged a full days rental for each day the item is late plus a $20 admin fee per item. Items that are brought back dirty are subject to a $20 cleaning fee.

Note: Hamilton Neighbourhood Action Strategy groups may borrow these items free of charge. Any NAS bookings must be made by a Community Developer. 

Note: All proceeds from event rentals support Hamilton's Neighbourhood Action Strategy and Hamilton Tool Library Programs.
