Any donation helps. Our goal is $1500 to assist us in stocking up with tools.

Of course, we are always looking for donations of tools and volunteer time. Volunteers might help fix and clean tools or get them to a place that can, sort and organizes tools into our inventory system, lead workshops, be a mentor, man the tool library.


The Herman Prior Tool Library is a non-profit that relies solely on your generous donations to continue and develop our operations. Every dollar counts!


Do you have tools that you don’t use? Give them new life and donate them to the Tool Library. We can even repair them if it is reasonable to do so.

We are happy to receive almost any tool donation! The only requirements are that all donated tools must be in working (or serviceable) order. Below are some suggestions, with the high priority items in italics. To donate a tool, e-mail or bring it into the Tool Library during open hours. Antique tools are also welcome!
