Donations are welcome!

Thank you so very much for considering the Maine Tool Library for rehoming your tools. We are very grateful for your donation and honored that you believe in our mission. The success and growth of the Maine Tool Library have depended on donations of tools, time, and funding from generous community members like you. 

Because of our current inventory and space limitations, we must be selective about what we can accept. PLEASE READ BELOW to determine whether your donation fits with our current needs: 

Tools we CANNOT accept:

Broken or rusty tools
Gas-powered tools
Common garden and hand tools
Lawn and garden products, chemicals, cleansers, lubricants, fluids, etc.
How-to manuals
Spare parts and attachments unless they come with a specific tool that they fit

Tools we CAN accept:

Cordless power tools in good operating condition (must have operational batteries and chargers)
Anything on our current wishlist (we are updating this list)
Some high-quality, unusual/niche tools (please ask)

More space! If you can donate the use of an easily-accessible space where we can store off-season tools, we can use the space we have more efficiently. Please contact us.

If your donation is something we can accept, bring it to the library during our open hours: Wednesdays from 4-7PM and Saturdays from 9AM-1PM. If you would like a receipt, we can provide that when you drop off your donation.

Questions about donations? Contact us at A tool librarian will get back to you soon.

If your donation is something we cannot accept, contact the Habitat for Humanity ReStore on Riverside Street/Warren Ave. They sell used tools, furniture, and building materials to fund their good work.
