Create. Build. Innovate.

From weekend projects around the house to exploring a new hobby, ELPL has the tools that you would rather borrow than buy. Patrons ages 18 and older have free access to routers, drills, ladders, saws, laser levels, and more, all of which have been generously provided by The Home Depot Foundation. Here is what you should know:

  • Tools are checked out for a seven day loan period, and may be renewed once if no one else is on hold.
  • Patrons can borrow up to two tools at one time.
  • Tools can be picked up at the library's service desk during open hours. Make sure to bring a picture ID and your library card.
