Cville Tool Library

Empowering our community with tools

It’s so frustrating when you don’t have the right tool for the job.

You know the feeling. You’re deep into a home repair or project and you realize you don’t have the tool that you need. So frustrating!

What are your options? Go buy the new expensive tool just to get the job done? Hope to find a friend or neighbor to borrow one?

Don’t you wish there was a place like the local library where you could check out a tool like a book?

Well, NOW THERE IS. The Cville Tool Library was started by folks just like you, so we can share our tools and learn from each other.

Save Money

No more wasted money on buying expensive tools for one-time use.

Save Time

Just browse our library to find the right tool, and we will get it ready for you to pick up in no time.

Save Space

Free up space at home. No need to store tools that you use infrequently.

Welcome to the Tool Library

We help you save and learn new skills.

Save the Environment

Donating unused tools and sharing helps reduce, reuse and recycle.

Develop Skills

Attend our trainings and classes to learn new tools and skills.

When you share tools with your community,
you empower them to take control of their lives.

How Does It Work?

We have a large selection of tools, some donated, others bought new.
Check them out – like a library book – to get your project done!
