Don Baker Tool Library
We believe in helping others help themselves!
Habitat for Humanity Greater Peoria Area is in the process of opening The Don Baker Tool Library in Peoria! “What is a Tool Library,” you may ask? It is much like a regular “book library,” but with tools instead! Sometimes purchasing necessary tools can be quite pricey and unaffordable to many families in our community. The Don Baker Tool Library provides a service in which we can educate borrowers on proper tool usage and then loan out the tool they need to complete their projects! This is an excellent opportunity to continue to grow and to get to know the members of our community better! It will be attached to the Peoria ReStore on Main Street.

We can’t thank Don enough for his hard work and dedication!
