libraryLast month, the Toronto Tool Library team launched the Sharing Depot, Canada’s first library of things where, for $50-$100 per year, members can borrow camping and sports equipment, house party supplies, board games and toys. The project highlights the growing library of things trend and serves as a model for other organizations looking to grow the sharing movement in their town.

Shareable spoke with Lawrence Alvarez, president of the Institute for a Resource-Based Economy and co-founder of the Toronto Tool Library and Sharing Depot, about the growth of the library of things movement, being freed from the burden of ownership, and the importance of municipal support for sharing projects. Here are the highlights of our conversation.
