While this is no surprise to us, since we both track tool and lending libraries around the country and offer a tool library software platform to make it easy to start new ones. It’s great to see the AP picking up the story:
In a number of communities across the U.S., it’s possible to borrow tools, musical instruments, fishing poles and much more from the local public library. The trend expands the traditional role of the library as a community resource for free knowledge. Libraries see the programs as a new way to offer residents a chance to learn — just not necessarily with a book.
