At the TORONTO TOOL LIBRARY, anyone with a membership can sign-out tools for both their home and community initiatives. Whether you are hanging a picture or renovating a community park, the Toronto Tool Library offers 
a range of equipment for your project as a low-cost, 
resource sharing and space-saving alternative to purchasing and owning tools. Non-profits and charities will also enjoy special membership rates.  Local tool libraries reduce the costs of improving and greening neighbourhoods, thereby transforming homes and community spaces into vibrant places that reflect  a commitment to sustainability and environmental concern.

THE FILM STARS PROJECT is a skills development, personal development, and community development approach that utilizes the medium of a collaboratively-produced series of film/photography. Through involvement in this project, the youth are introduced to industry equipment, all aspects of film production, acting/performance skills and photography. These youth will be taught the fundamentals, and through development and rehearsal, will be able to produce both pictures and video that will show the different stereotypes young people go through. In addition to the technical skills that these youth participants gain, they are in a group of their peers, where negotiation, problem-solving and communication skills are constantly being practiced and adapted during the process of filming and photography. By participating youth also learn about punctuality, commitment, follow through, rehearsal and team accountability. This will provide opportunities for them to have their voices heard, and to express the issues within their respective communities and to express their life struggles through pictures and video. It will also provide opportunities to learn pro-social skills in taking the next positive and transformative steps in their lives. Film Stars are showing films and photography at House Culture Explosion on Saturday, Nov. 26.
