Even during this difficult year, the West Philly Tool Library has continued to be an invaluable resource to so many Philadelphians.  The Tool Library helps members access the tools and knowledge that we need to repair our homes, beautify our blocks, create healthier communities, and improve quality of life for all Philadelphians.  We are committed to keeping the Tool Library affordable for everyone and we can do this with your help and generosity.

But we can only do it with your help.

That’s why, between now and New Year’s Eve, for each donation given—no matter the amount—you will be entered to win a free lifetime membership.

Unfortunately, COVID-19 forced us to cancel our tool sale fundraisers and scale back our hours.  As a result, we have not been able to raise the money we rely on to pay our rent, utilities, tool librarians, and purchase new tools.

So we’re asking for your support. We want to continue to help you access tools for your home and community projects. Your support will help us repair our tools for the new year, diversify our tool offerings, and prepare to hold classes and workshops.

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation online or with a check or cash by visiting the Tool Library during business hours. This is also a great time to renew your membership, or gift yourself a lifetime membership! Lifetime memberships are a bargain and help the Tool Library when we need it most. And remember, for each donation, we will add your name to the drawing for a free lifetime membership. The lucky lifetime membership winner will be selected during the first week of January.

We thank you for your continued support and look forward to the year ahead,

The West Philly Tool Library
