#TipTuesday: Tools for Gardening

You're all ready to work in the garden when you realize you need a specific tool. You don't want to buy it since it's something you don't use often and maybe you don't have the space to store it.

Our advice? Don't buy it. Borrow it!

OPL's Tool Lending Library (TLL) has over 5,000 tools for you to borrow, including gardening and landscaping tools. From pruning shears to lawn mowers to instructional books, brochures, and videos, we've got a tool for your garden needs. Did we mention you can also give and take from one of our many seed lending library locations?

Free checkouts of any of our gardening or other tools is available to Oakland, Emeryville, and Piedmont residents only.
