Tool Lending Library is open!

The Maria Mongelluzzo Tool Library is a new resource provided by the Millvale Community Library. It is a collection of hand and power tools, ladders, and more that can be checked out for one week at a time. Operating hours are Tuesdays, 6-8pm, Thursdays, 4pm-6pm, Fridays, 10am-12pm, Saturdays, 10am-2pm, and by appointment. If you are interested in volunteering, donating funds or tools, or just have questions, call or visit the library today!
