In-person borrowing is back at The Tool Library!!!

Dear Tooligans,

Spring is in the air, and with it the hum of your favorite lawn and gardening equipment from The Tool Library! With warmer temperatures on the way, we are excited to announce that The Tool Library will be back open for in-person borrowing starting Wednesday, May 5th.

Due to increased demand and limited volunteer capacity, we’ll no longer be offering curbside service. You can call or text us (716-510-1745) during our regular hours of operation to reserve a tool for same day pick-up and we will continue to maintain a wait list for high-demand tools.

Our hours are Wednesday through Friday 2-7PM and Saturday 10am-4pm

Visit our ‘Borrowing from The Tool Library’ page to see a full rundown on how to pick-up and drop-off your tools!


1. Fill out membership form
2. Pay annual membership fee
3. Get access to 1000’s of tools
4. Change the world!

A membership to the Tool Library gives individuals and organizations access to an inventory of thousands of tools for an annual fee starting as low as $20. With no rental fees and a week-long loan period, stop spending hundreds of dollars to buy tools you’ll only use once and start borrowing ours today!

By supporting the Tool Library through a membership, you’re not only gaining access to thousands of tools, you’re also supporting dozens of hands-on projects and programs working everyday to make our city a little better.

"When you share tools with a community, they begin doing things they never could have done before."
