Tool Library Now Open!

March 29, 2022

Have big DIY dreams but a somewhat less-big Brookline apartment? Save your space and a trip to the hardware store with this brand new collection of over 50 hand and power tools, including screwdriver sets, drills, saws, ladders, and a lot more exclusively at our Coolidge Corner location!

How does it work?

Almost exactly the same as checking out a book! Just:

  1. Place a hold on the tool you’d like to borrow. If you’d like to place a hold on multiple different tools, give our staff a call at 617-730-2380. You can also swing by in person to see what we have available.
  2. Wait for an email notification letting you know your tool is ready to pick up.
  3. Fill out a safety waiver at the desk, then check out the tool with your library card!
  4. Return tools to the Coolidge Corner Library during their open hours (please don’t put tools in the bookdrop!). All tools may be borrowed for up to two weeks and renewed if no one is waiting for them.
