Our mission at the Tool Library is to provide communities with the tools they need to create the change they want.

The Tool Library is a place where WNY residents can come and check out tools and equipment to help maintain and fix-up their homes, start a garden, and improve their communities. In addition to lending tools out, we also facilitate low cost high impact community development projects.


We are excited to announce that The Tool Library is back open for in-person borrowing! We can’t wait to see all your shining faces 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 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.

We are a smaller organization with no paid staff, but thanks to a powerful network of volunteers and members we’ve continued to adapt and respond to new challenges since the beginning of the pandemic.

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