The Denver Tool Library is here to provide the Denver metro area with low-cost access to tools and the know-how to use them, all in a safe and supportive environment. We remove barriers to tool access, including high cost, space, knowledge, inhibition, and discrimination, so that everyone can have the resources they need to make and maintain the lives they imagine.
We have an inventory of over 5,000 tools that you can check out just like you check out books from a book library. We help over 700 individuals and families a year complete projects they never thought possible – thanks to the power of sharing. And we offer DIY and traditional art classes as well as a community workspace for those who can better empower themselves in group settings.
People from all walks of life are welcome to enter the Denver Tool Library without fear of criticism or judgement and get the tools (and skills) they need to succeed in their projects. Whether you’re a third generation carpenter or a first-time drill user, there’s a place for you at the DTL.
