About Us

"We believe that access to common hand and power tools should not be limited by income."


The Santa Rosa Tool library is dedicated to helping people who live or work in Sonoma County reduce the cost of maintaining the places in which they live, work, and play. The tool library offers hand and power tools for landscaping and home repair ... free of charge.


The Santa Rosa Tool Library was founded in August 2008 by Dustin Zuckerman who loaned tools out of his ground level apartment, then a Victorian home, until securing a public facility in downtown Santa Rosa in April 2011.
