Need Tools? One LIbrary Has Them

GROSSE POINTE FARMS, Mich. (July 18, 2013)--In communities across the U.S., it's possible to borrow some unusual items from public libraries.

Libraries in Grosse Pointe Farms and Ann Arbor, Mich.; Oakland, Calif.; and Burlington, Vt., for example, offer what Ann Arbor library official Celeste Choate calls "unusual collections."

The Grosse Pointe Public Library has more than 100 tools including bolt cutters, bow saws and radiator wrenches for those in need of a little do-it-yourself assistance.

Carolyn Anthony, president of the national Public Library Association, says tool-lending and the like show libraries will provide "whatever they see as a need in the community."
