Tool Lending Center

Located on the Smith Park grounds at Jefferson (571) & Smith Streets, this free program is open to anyone who lives within New Carlisle’s city limits. Borrowers must supply a valid driver’s license and their most recent water utility bill.

Items typically can be borrowed for 24 hours, although the Planning Department may grant extensions in cases of unforeseen inclement weather. Participants have to sign an agreement that states they are responsible for replacement costs if a tool is stolen, damaged due to misuse or not returned on time.

Anyone interested in donating or borrowing equipment can contact the Planning Department at (937) 845-9492, ext. 20, or by email at

An online request form is also available.
