How the Tool Library is already working in the community:
University Heights Tool Library
For just $20 a year, residents of Buffalo and surrounding communities gain access to an inventory of over 1,600 different tools. Items range from small hand tools like wrenches, hammers, and shovels, to power tools like chopsaws, sanders, drills & much more.
See the entire inventory online: https://universityheights.myturn.com/library/inventory/browse
ReTree the District
ReTree the District is a collaborative project of community partners in Buffalo’s University District that is working to plant 1,000 trees across the community. We are working to repair our tree canopy, engage volunteers, and train citizen tree stewards.
