Welcome to the University Heights Tool Library
Summer Hours of Operation
Please note that the Tool Library will have slightly revised hours of operation during the summer. Many of our student volunteers are headed back home or off to pursue exciting opportunities for the next few months.
Did you know the Tool Library is staffed entirely by volunteers?
Our hours of operation depend on members of the community willing to donate their time to a cause they believe in.
If you are interested in help us extend our hours by volunteering a few hours of your time please fill out the volunteer application on our website and we’d be happy to work something out!
ReTree the District Phase I Review
Wondering where, what type, and how many trees we planted as part of ReTree the District Phase I? We've put out a report that covers these statistics as well as project costs and total value added to the community through our planting day on November 1st. We included preliminary feedback and recommendations as well. Contact us if you have ideas or would like to get involved!
