I was going to start this letter with something sad and melodramatic, like “it is with a heavy heart that I…”. But then I realized, that’s ridiculous! The last three years have been amazing — we did over 600 loans, we were in O magazine (and tons of other media), and we met some amazing people. Running this organization changed my life for the better, so how can I be sad about that?!
Yes, The Kitchen Library is closing but we are so glad we met and worked with the folks from The Toronto Tool Library, MyTurn, CSI, Living City Health, Not Far From The Tree, The Toronto Seed Library, and so many more. And we need to send a HUGE THANK YOU to all the volunteers over the years and our Toronto Chapter Lead, Anna!
The good news is that some appliances will be going to The Sharing Depot, so you can still borrow them, and any excess appliances will be donated to refugee families to help them start their lives in Canada.
If you have any questions or concerns or just want to send virtual hugs please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Stay tuned for a more in-depth post about how to start and run a Kitchen Library of your own.
