Tool Library Update

First of all, thanks to everyone who has donated tools and supplies to the library this month. We’ve been entering tools into the inventory at quite a clip! Check out the new tools by clicking the Inventory tab. Then, if you’re inspired to join, follow the prompts to create an account and next time you visit the library, we’ll happily accept your membership documents and annual dues.


Need to hang Christmas/Holiday lights? We have several beautiful extension ladders. If you’re a member, you can make arrangements with us to be open by appointment for a ladder, or any other tool in the inventory.

Need Items and Tasks

We’ve generated a new list of needed items and a task list. If you have time or any of these things to contribute, E-Mail the tool library and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can. The list is at the bottom of this page.
