The Chicago Tool Library

The Chicago Tool Library is a community lending library with an inventory of tools and equipment (including home and kitchen equipment) that community members are able to borrow. Our mission is to provide equitable access to tools, equipment, and information to allow all Chicagoans to learn, share, and create. We believe that centralizing resources like tools levels the playing field for our community to make improvements in their lives, it prevents senseless consumerism and thoughtless waste, and it creates a new space for community-building and sharing information.
