“Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in.”

Sharing is caring! Tell a friend or bring someone along for the ride.


Following stay at home orders from New York State, The Tool Library is cancelling all service days for April and May.

We are closely monitoring the situation and will be following the best guidelines set by health officials. Latest updates, including updates on our June service days, will be available on our social media and website.

We appreciate your understanding and support. We hope to be back in action as soon as possible!

Join The Tool Library and our community partners for service events across the University District this spring!

Whether it’s tree planting, garden tending, street cleaning, rainbow painting, or some light leaf blowing, there’s a way for you to get involved in your community and make a positive impact! Most events take place on Saturday mornings and last no longer than three hours.

Got an idea for a project in your neighborhood? We’ll bring the tools, you bring the people power!

Please be sure to check our Facebook page and website often, as new events are likely to be added!
