We all know you can borrow books from libraries.  Most libraries also offer music, videos, and audiobooks, but how many libraries allow you to borrow tools?  The Bucks County Free Library is now loaning out things like stud finders, levels, electricity usage meters and more.

The libraries website says "When the Check Engine light goes on, or you need to locate studs in a wall, or you want to know just how much energy your appliances are consuming, check out one of the tools in our new tool collection."
