Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

This is a rather new trend, so I'm wondering what is the best way to describe a tool sharing library as quite well described by its Wikipedia entry;

"A tool library is an example of a Library of Things. Tool libraries allow patrons to check out or borrow tools, equipment and "how-to" instructional materials, functioning either as a rental shop, with a charge for borrowing the tools, or more commonly free of charge as a form of community sharing."

Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tool_library

I've seen some examples described with the 'library' tag but I feel it doesn't perfectly fit what a tool library is. There is also the 'shop=tool_hire' but the philosophy and the mood behind these shops is also sufficiently different to be separated.
