Membership is extended to qualified residents and qualified non-profit organizations. For more details on eligibility, ask Tool Lending Library Staff.
Memberships are not for use by landlords, renters, contractors, or individuals for trade. Any misuse of membership may lead to serious consequences.
You will be issued a Membership Card, which must be presented each time you check out tools. If you lose your card, a replacement card may be purchased for $10 per card. No tools will ever be lent out without the member presenting their card. There are NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS RULE. ONLY THE NAMED MEMBER MAY BORROW TOOLS.
Due to high demand and limited availability, some maintenance tools may not be available for checkout for several days. Your check out term will be determined by the Tool Lending Library Staff. ALL TOOLS REQUIRE A DEPOSIT.
If you borrow a tool and it stops working, is damaged, or is missing a part RETURN IT IMMEDIATELY. ANY MODIFICATION OF ANY TOOL MAY RESULT IN THE MEMBER PAYING FOR A REPLACEMENT TOOL AND THEIR MEMBERSHIP BEING REVOKED.
Call Habitat ReStore's Tool Lending Library at (515)309-0224 to check tool availability. We are NOT able to hold tools for checkout (NO RESERVATIONS).
Tools may be picked up or returned between: 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. - Monday - Saturday
Tools must be returned to the Tool Lending Library in the same condition they were lent. If there is any damage or if any parts of the tool are missing, the Tool Lending Library will keep the tool deposit (see below), and may bill the member for repair or replacement and their Membership may be revoked.
- Deposits are required for all tools.
- You may check deposit costs with any Tool Lending Library Staff.
- The value of tools has been pre-determined by Habitat ReStore.
|Value From||Value To||Deposit|
Deposits may be made by personal check (issued by member), by money order, cash or credit card.
If you return a tool that has not been cleaned a $20 charge will be deducted from deposit for cleaning. If you return a tool that has been damaged YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR DAMAGE AND MAY NOT BE REFUNDED YOUR DEPOSIT.
If you pay in cash, you must present the receipt issued to you at the time you borrowed the tools in order to get your deposit back.
