Welcome to the University Heights Tool Library

Borrow & Build. We provide communities with the tools they need to create the change they want.

We're a community-based tool lending library serving the community since 2011. Learn more about us, search our inventory of tools, become a member, or volunteer your time.

Did you know the Tool Library is staffed entirely by volunteers?

Our hours of operation depend on members of the community willing to donate their time to a cause they believe in.

If you are interested in help us extend our hours by volunteering a few hours of your time please fill out the volunteer application on our website and we’d be happy to work something out!

You can help us hit our fundraising goal of $5,000 and fund  the trees and tools necessary to make ReTree the District a reality. Visit our GiveGab fundraising page to support the work of dozens of community stakeholders and over one thousand volunteers.
