Tool Library

Berkley, CA has a Tool Library where residents can check out a whole list of tools for 3-7 days to complete projects. This is such a great idea. There have been plenty of times when I needed a random tool for a single job, but didn't want to buy that tool to use only once. Having paid $28 to rent a 32' ladder for 4 hours, I can really see a need for tool libraries everywhere. In cities where residents don't have the space to store a large collection of tools this makes especially good sense. On the other hand, it feels good to own a bunch of tools. It feels good knowing I can build or destroy a bunch of stuff with the tools I have.
