Check out our Tool Library Inventory and either call 423-643-7740 or drive up to our Downtown curbside pickup area and call the number on the sign. You can check out up to 3 tools at a time! Although you cannot reserve tools, you can call to find out what is currently available. If it is your first time checking out tools, you will need to first fill out our Liability Waiver and Tool Use Policy. To save time, print and fill these out before you head down. If you don’t have the ability to print, we’ll have forms for you.
