New Brighton Tool Shed
No need to purchase and store tools that you may only need to use once a year; come and check them out from the tool lending library instead! The New Brighton Residents Association and New Brighton Community Association have joined together in efforts to bring you a library full of over 60 tools to meet your landscaping, snow removal, home improvement, DYI, and automotive needs! This is a free service for all New Brighton Residents over the age of 18… with more perks available to those who also have a valid NBCA membership. If your family also has a NBCA Membership, you can enjoy additional Tool Shed perks, as listed below!

No need to make an appointment, the NBRA office is open between 9:30am-8:30pm, so come by during those times to borrow the tool of your choice!
New Brighton Community Association Membership Perks
The vision of the New Brighton Community Association (NBCA) is to provide the community with a sense of lasting pride and well-being; aiming to listen and promote a unified voice for the community, while also instilling a sense of belonging within New Brighton.
The New Brighton Community Association (NBCA) consists of a voluntary membership made up of resident volunteers who live in the community. As an association, the NBCA acts as a political advocate for New Brighton with the elected Municipal, Provincial and Federal representatives. The NBCA is responsible for working with the City of Calgary on a wide variety of community issues such as traffic calming, playground zones, city park issues and zoning, to name just a few.
Your NBCA Membership provides you with a voice on Community Association matters, and will greatly enhance our ability to provide a unified voice for New Brighton. In addition, the NBCA membership offers the following perks for the New Brighton Tool Shed:
- NBRA Members who also hold a New Brighton Community Association membership may put in-stock items on hold, by phone or in person, on the same day of checkout. Holds will not be administered via email or the New Brighton Tool Shed website. The New Brighton Tool Shed reserves the right to make an exception to this policy for large community events. No exceptions will be made for individual lending.
- NBRA Members who also hold a New Brighton Community Association membership may borrow tools for a period of 7 days (some restrictions apply as indicated in the catalogue). All tools borrowed are to be returned to the library by 8pm on their due date. Tools may only be returned during the New Brighton Tool Shed’s open hours.
- NBRA Members who also hold a New Brighton Community Association membership are allowed to borrow a maximum of 5 tools at one time.
- Only NBRA Members who also hold a New Brighton Community Association membership are permitted to borrow tools marked with the NBCA symbol: Air Compressor, Pressure Washer, Table Saw, Rotortiller, and Snow Blower.
