GLOUCESTER TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) - Camden County is trying to make it more affordable for do-it-yourselfers.

The county government is launching a tool lending library as part of an environmental park in Gloucester Township.

County Freeholder Michelle Gentek tells The Philadelphia Inquirer (https://bit.ly/1K2YMdg ) that the idea is based on the West Philly Tool Library, which is run by a non-profit organization in Philadelphia.

There, members pay $20 to $50 a year for access to tools.

Gentek says it makes sense to make tools available to people don’t have to buy something they might use just once.



The plan is to launch the program in the summer.
