Springfield Tool Library

A tool library works like a traditional library, but it lends tools instead of books. It’s a great resource for people who want to use tools, but don’t need them (or have a place to store them) all the time.

The Springfield Tool Library, the only program of its kind in the state, lends out home repair and gardening tools to Springfield residents and community groups. Membership is currently $15. This is a pro-rated amount valid through April 2022! You can borrow up to 5 tools at a time and keep them for one week!

We also offer Tool Library-related events throughout the year – a quarterly Fix-it Fair and an annual Gearhead Garage Sale. For more information about these events, visit our Events page.

The Springfield Tool Library is located at 330 N. Jefferson, in the large shed on the north side of the parking lot. The Tool Library is open Thursdays 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., Fridays 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. OR by appointment. Please email hking@cpozarks.org or call 417-888-2020.

Joining the Springfield Tool Library is simple, and your membership fee helps purchase new tools. Are you planning to do-it-yourself for a long time and save money? If so, consider joining the Springfield Tool Library as a lifetime member for only $200. Additionally, gift certificates to the Springfield Tool Library make a great gift!

Thanks to the support of local community members and businesses, the Springfield Tool Library’s inventory is constantly growing. Check out current inventory of tools available for loan here!
