What are People Sayin' about the Denver Tool Library?

"Invaluable resource! DTL has nearly everything I've needed for multi faceted remodel projects. Tools I would never purchase and are costly to rent. Sarah is great and always has a smile. I sure hope this business model will work for those invested. It is terribly useful from this supporters point of view. Thx DTL" - Bruce E.


"One of Denver's best resources! Don't go to to the hardware store for a speedy tool purchase or rental. Get a tool library membership! $80.oo for a whole year, yes please!" - Marie D.


"Legitimately the best resource in Denver for anyone who likes making things,owns a house, or just needs tools sometimes!" - Anonymous 


"A quote I once heard from them pretty much sums it up 'Anyone who has had to use a butter knife for a screw driver knows the value of a place like this'" - Mara O.


"As an artist, The Denver Tool Library has allowed me to create pieces I've had sitting in my idea book for years. I had never had access to all the appropriate tools it takes to build my projects and when I found the DTL I was beyond excited. Along with providing access to a wide variety of tools, there are also some super awesome people that work there whom are all very knowledgeable and helpful. The DTL is AMAZING!!!" - Jon M.


"Denver Tool Library is a great place to gain access to tools you might need for home repairs, basic construction, and woodworking projects. The yearly membership pays for itself if you check out two large power tools." - Rachel B.


"The Denver Tool Library has been saved me SO much money in my first year of home ownership. Their tool selection has grown substantially in the last year and continues to amaze me. I plan on having a membership well into the future, even as I acquire more of my own tools." - Jordan A.


"Best place ever!!! If you're remodeling your home and you're not a member of the Tool Library, you're wrong!" - Deke L.

"What a magical place full of creativity, enthusiasm, community, and hard work. Can't wait to make a family donation." - Maureen H.


"The selection of tools you get access to, all for one annual fee is ridiculously awesome. I know I've spent more on a renting a single tool from Home Depot and you don't have to be stressful and rushed. You get the tools for long enough to actually do something!" Anonymous
