FAQs

In the garage at 2417 Lyons Street in Evanston

When will the tool library be open?

We are open to receive donations the first and third Saturday of every month, from 12 noon to 2 pm. Stay tuned for our formal opening this summer!

I have tools that I use occasionally. Can I donate them to the library and borrow them when I need them?

Absolutely, tools can be donated and borrowed again when needed.

How can I help?

We are looking for one or two volunteers to serve on the Tool Library Core Team. We are a fun and friendly group and we meet every other Saturday for about an hour and a half to plan and keep the project on track.

We also welcome drop-in volunteers the first and third Saturday of every month from 12 noon to 2 pm to help organize the tools and arrange the space.

We are in need of metal shelves and tool storage cabinets.
