L’Outillerie

Most of us have tools we rarely use which take up space in our closets, garages, and basements. A group of social economy entrepreneurs in Rimouski took a different approach: creating a “library of things” called L’Outillerie.

Show Notes

Most of us have tools we rarely use which take up space in our closets, garages, and basements. A group of social economy entrepreneurs in Rimouski took a different approach: creating a “library of things.” For an annual fee, members of the nonprofit can borrow over 500 different tools, kitchenware, and small appliances as well as participate in workshops covering everything from sewing to knife sharpening.  

We talk with Anja Kreysch, one of L’Outillerie’s founders, about how growing up in East Germany helped spark the idea for the project, how the founders used community crowdfunding to get L’Outillerie started, and some of the more unusual objects in its collection.
