Community Building

● Tools & Housing ●

The tool library is a free tool lending program designed to serve the Bloomington -Normal community. Free tool lending provides homeowners with the resources that they need to make repairs and modifications to their homes, allowing them to maintain a feeling of independence and integrity. Having the proper tools is a necessity for any project. 

Tool Library Membership

Any Bloomington-Normal resident over the age of 18 is eligible to use the tool library. Members just need to submit a membership application, complete a liability waiver, and present a valid Driver's license or state I.D. to the tool library staff.
