Our tool lending library was established in 2016, the first in the state of Florida. Our mission is for all residents to have access to quality tools at no cost. All you need to borrow tools from us is a PPLC library card. Library cards are free for residents of Pinellas County and may be obtained at any PPLC member library. Tools must be reserved online through our catalog at least one day prior to the day that you would like them, and they can be picked up during our open hours. Upon your first visit to pick up tools, you will be required to sign a membership agreement and release form which will remain on file.
You must first create a MyTurn account before you can reserve tools. Reservations must be placed at least a day in advance. Same day pickup is not available. Please see our Borrowing Guidelines for more information.
We always accept donations of quality, working condition, hand or electric tools (no gas powered tools, please). If you have the original manual, please include it with your donation. After tools are donated, we evaluate and determine if they are safe and usable. Tools may be dropped off during normal library business hours. Pickups can be arranged by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We also accept monetary donations to purchase and maintain tools for our users. Thank you for your support!
