The Green Lents Community Tool Library is a free service for residents of the Lents, Powellhurst-Gilbert, Pleasant Valley, Foster-Powell, Mt. Scott-Arleta, Brentwood-Darlington and Montavilla neighborhoods. The Community Tool Library (CTL) functions like a book library, except you check out tools or other project materials instead of books. Check out the "View our tools" tab above to see what tools we have in our inventory and the status of availability.

Signing up as a member: You will need a state-issued ID and a piece of mail (like a utility bill) to verify your address to sign up as a member at your first visit. You can speed up the process by first entering your information online using the "Membership" tab above. When you arrive, just let us know that you have pre-entered your information and we will find it in the computer. You will still need to sign our membership agreement to qualify and show ID and verification of address at that time. After that, your member card/ID is all you need to check out tools. Each member of your household (18 years and older) must sign up to check out tools.

Borrowing rules:
  1. You must live or work in one of the neighborhoods in the service area and provide appropriate identification and verification of address.
  2. You can check out as many tools as you need. Tools are due back to the library one week from the day they are checked out. Extensions may be granted with appropriate notification.
  3. There is a fine charged for each tool per day of operation for late returns on tools. Fines are due upon return of the tools.
  4. While we understand that there will be normal wear and tear on the tools, the borrower is responsible for the cost of replacing broken tools.
  5. You must know how to use the tools you are checking out and be aware of associated risks. The Community Tool Library is not responsible for training you on how to use the tools or how you use them after they are checked out.
