A revolutionary leap in the realm of sharing economies, the Victoria Tool Library (VTL), nestled at 750 Fairfield Road in the heart of Victoria, has broadened its horizons by adding outdoor recreational gear to its existing catalogue of over 1,600 items. Since its inception in 2016, the VTL has been a boon for DIY enthusiasts, providing a sharing platform for tools and equipment, and thereby, eliminating the burden of high costs associated with individual projects.
A New Chapter Unfolds at VTL
In its latest stride, the VTL has announced the addition of an array of items, including pickleball sets, outdoor lawn games, camping stoves, and life jackets. But what truly stands out in this expansion is the inclusion of assistive recreational devices for people living with disabilities. These include a hand-cycle, a mountain E-trike, and an A-linker mobility scooter, all sourced from the RAD society. This pioneering initiative is set to bolster the lives of those grappling with mobility challenges, fostering a sense of independence and activity.
Towards an Inclusive Society
The VTL, partly funded by the Victoria Foundation and City of Victoria, operates on an annual membership basis priced at $100. It also extends sponsored memberships to community groups or individuals living with disabilities. With this development, the VTL not only encourages outdoor activities but also promotes the culture of physical activity among its members, thereby contributing to a healthier society.
