Tell me 'bout it

We provide communities the tools they need to create the change they want. The Tool Library is an all-volunteer nonprofit tool-lending library located off of Main Street in Buffalo’s University Heights neighborhood.

We believe that cost shouldn’t be a barrier to fixing up your home, growing your own food, or improving your community. For a small annual fee, our members — including people, organizations, and businesses — can borrow from our inventory of over 3,000 tools.

We also believe that a strong community is a civically engaged community. We put our tools to work on large-scale community projects such as neighborhood clean-ups, tree-plantings, community gardens, and public art installations. When communities come together, incredible things can happen.

Finally, we believe that you only know something as well as you can teach it. We transformed the storefront next door to the Tool Library into the Community Laboratory or ‘CoLab’ to provide a space in the neighborhood to host hands-on DIY workshops. By sharing skills and knowledge, we build stronger, more connected communities.
