March is Match Madness Month!

Your support goes further this month, thanks to the Partnership For Better Health.  Because we are a small all volunteer Nonprofit, we rely on our community to keep these tools and workshop space affordable for everyone. No matter what your giving level, every gift, large or small, will make a difference.  Click the banner and choose the Carlisle Tool Library to keep tools in the hands of those that need them.

About Us

The Carlisle Tool Library is empowering the community by making tools, shop space, and expertise available to everyone. It’s like a book library – you borrow the tools you need and return them when you’re finished. There are no rental fees – you make a monthly or yearly contribution and get access, plain and simple.

Our objective is to empower you to take mechanical problems into your own hands. Learn how to drain a grease trap, build a birdhouse, or replace a doorknob. We have the tools, the space, and the resources you need to make your own projects happen. Use the resources of your community to build the things you’ve always wanted to build – it’s cheaper than renting!
