Atwood Tool Library


We are trying some new hours!

We will be open the usual Wednesdays from 6 to 8 pm. We will also be open Fridays from 6 to 8 pm starting 2/17/17. We will be eliminating Saturday hours for right now. If members’ needs require having Saturday hours, we can always add them back.

We have a phone number!

608-515-8590. Leave a message and one of us will return your call.

 What is a Tool Library?

It is exactly like traditional libraries, but instead of books, you can check out tools. A tool library is a community resource that provides home owners and tenants with the tools they need to perform simple home and bike maintenance, tend their yards and gardens, build furniture and projects – while along the way meeting and sharing with neighbors in a community sustainability project.


Come sign up on Saturdays from 10 am until 2 pm or Wednesdays from 6 pm until 8 pm for your $20 yearly or $200 lifetime membership. Remember to bring cash or check, a picture ID and proof of residency in one of the neighborhoods in our coverage area.
