Closed for the Season

Attention: Empower Tools will be closed from November 17, 2018 until the week of February 17, 2019. 

Empower Tools is a successful community collaborative.  We have continued to exceed all of our measures of success.  And now we are preparing for the future.  To do that Empower Tools will be closed from November 17, 2018 until the week of February 17, 2019.  Patrons will be able to check out tools until November 9.  We will be open Nov 14-16 to receive tools, answer questions and prepare the shop.

While we won’t be lending tools we will be working on several initiatives and seeking to ensure our continued success.  During this time patrons will continue to be able to return items to the Covington Library at 502 Scott Street during their regular business hours.

Patrons may call Julia Allegrini at 859587.79.20 to ask questions make recommendations and share comments.
