Denver Tool Library

Recently, two of us from the adult reference department at the library took a field trip to the Denver Tool Library. Located at 555 Santa Fe Drive in Denver, the DTL is a community resource where members can borrow hand and power tools that they otherwise might not have access to.

The membership costs $80 a year and a tool may be checked for approximately 4 days. The library is open on Tuesdays & Thursdays, 3pm-7pm and Saturdays & Sundays, 10am-2pm.

Librarian Sarah Steiner started the library about a year and a half ago after raising over $20,000 in anĀ IndieGoGo campaign.

Tools run the gamut from saws, screwdrivers, hammers, mallets, clamps, tape measures, squares, table saws, chain saws, routers, brad $ finish nailers. Check out their online inventory of tools for a comprehensive list.

Even more impressive is a bike station where members can work on their bicycles.
