What is the Tacony Tool Library?
The Tacony Tool Library is a nonprofit tool-lending library and community hub in the heart of Philadelphia. We offer a large variety of tools, classes, a public woodworking shop, a dedicated DIY workspace, and a home repair classroom.
Heavy Duty Tools
Some projects require something more efficient than a screwdriver or hammer. We provide our members with a variety of heavy duty tools to make your project easier on you.
Your everyday tools
It is true that not everyone needs a heavy duty tool to get a job done. For all of our handy people out there, we also provide members with everyday tools to tighten up any loose ends.
Come Check Us Out
We always enjoy having customers coming by and taking a look at what we have in our tool library. Our friendly staff would love to show you around, and maybe you’ll find something you didn’t think you needed.
Our Tools Collection
The best way to experience our wide collection of tools is to visit the store. Take a tour of our tool library and choose the most efficient tools to satisfy your project needs.
