Opened in February 2023, the Irvington Tool Lending Collection has tools to tinker, repair, make, and build with. Some of the tools in this collection include a ladder, pipe wrench, heat gun, orbital sander, multi-bit screwdriver, claw hammer, and mechanics tool set. The tool collection can be used for home, car, and phone repairs as well as DIY projects like building a fence. This collection is small to start, but will grow as the Library receives feedback from members.
How Tool Lending Works:
- An Alameda County Library card and signed waiver are required before borrowing tools.
- Tools can be borrowed for up to 3 weeks and cannot be renewed or placed on hold.
- Tools must be picked up at and returned to the owning library.
