Check the gallery to find out what tools are in the Tool Library.

We've expanded the Library of Things! To keep providing useful items to the people of Grande Prairie we reached out to our community, and they responded by donating items and helping us build the Tool Library!

Why a Tool Library?

Imagine you had planned out the perfect DIY project, but the cost of the tools was higher than the cost of the materials themselves. How many times will you use these tools afterwards? Once a year? Some of them maybe never?

We want to help provide access to tools to those who might not normally have it, the same way we do with everything in the library. It just makes sense!

What do I need to know?

For the time being tools will only be available for borrowing to patrons 18 or older.

Signing a liability waiver will be required each time you borrow.

7 day borrowing period.

Note: Items from our Library of Things can only be checked out from and returned to GPPL.
