Somerville Tool Library

For $50 yearly membership fee, tool library members can borrow up to 7 items from our growing collection of carpentry, electrical and gardening tools for one week. Tool Library members must be over 18 and sign a membership agreement and a waiver. It is not required that members be Somerville residents.

How does it work? Membership fees are used to pay insurance premiums, maintain our website and repair and acquire tools. We are also supported by grants from Feast Mass and the New England Grassroots Environmental Fund. During our first year, members who donate tools to the library can waive the membership fee.
