The Tool Library is back open for curbside borrowing!

Dear Tooligans,

We are excited to announce that The Tool Library will be back open for borrowing starting Wednesday, January 6th with updated health and safety measures.

Please note that due to the continued rise in local rates of COVID-19, members will not be allowed inside the shop and we will be transitioning to curbside pick-up and drop-off.

Please call or text us ahead of time (716-510-1745) to reserve your tools and then let us know when you’ve arrived. We’ll do the rest! 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."
