ETL is a charity, set up to save people money, and help them live more sustainably. The organisation believe in access over excess - that sharing is preferable to ownership. This is particularly relevant to tools, as they are often things that are used fleetingly, before going in a cupboard to gather dust. The Tool Library works just like a library, but with tools instead of books. The workshop is an added bonus enabling the charity to train their members to use tools, work with charities and community groups to facilitate learning and a feeling of community.
