About the Tool Lending Library

Need a drill for a day? A torque wrench for a weekend? From staple guns to star bits, the PNA Tool Lending Library can help. With over 2,000 tools available to borrow, chances are that we have the right tool for the job. And with rental rates as low as $2 a week for some tools, your DIY project won’t break the bank!

You’ll find more than just quality tools at the Tool Library. Our expert staff and volunteers will happily offer the advice you need to get the job done the right way and stay safe while you’re doing it. The only thing you need to get started, is a current PNA Membership.
