Got any tools for PUSH?

Coming up this fall, PUSH will be opening a tool lending library! We are partnering with Buffalo ReUse to bring you a West Side location of the Buffalo Tool BARn at 456 Massachusetts, in the storefront below our housing co-op. Members join the Tool BARn for a small annual fee and are then able to borrow any tool from our collection at no charge, just like a library. We want our members to be able to borrow everything from hammers and rakes to lawnmowers and table saws, like other tool lending libraries across the country. Check out the West Philly Tool Library to get an idea of what we have in store! Do you have tools in good condition that collect dust in your basement? Tools that would get better use if you shared them with your neighbors? Make a tool donation and help get our Tool BARn started today!
