TEMPLE, TX (KXXV) -

The City of Temple Community Development Office announced the implementation of Temple’s Tool Library. 

The library is set to open in early January 2017 and is a tool lending program designed to empower residents through repair and maintenance of their properties. 

The Tool Library was created to allow residents to maintain a feeling of independence and dignity, while building a stronger, safer and more stable community. 

The program is a tool lending concept that is identical to that of a book lending library, but instead of books, it will lend tools. 

Donations of new or gently used tools will help build the tool inventory. Donations of broken or heavily rusted tools, hardware, nuts, bolts and nails cannot be accepted. 

Current drop-off locations include:

  • Community Resource Center: 101 N. Main St – M-F 8 a.m.- 5 p.m.
  • Summit: 620 Fryers Creek Circle – Open Daily
  • United Way: 604 N. 3rd St. – M-F 9 a.m.- 5 p.m.

For more drop-off locations, please contact United Way at 254-778-8616.

For more information about our Tool Library, please visit templetx.gov/tools or call us at 254-298-5997.
