Join the Greenbelt Makerspace Cooperative Tool Lending Library

The Greenbelt Makerspace Cooperative has created a tool lending library.  We also plan to return to developing resources and programs to engage our members in activities related to science, technology, arts, and crafts.  We depend on annual memberships, donations, grants, and sponsorships. 

The tool lending library is like a public library except for borrowing tools.  Among the advantages are: 

    • Equity: provide access to everyone for making repairs and creating

    • Sustainability: reduce number of tools manufactured and trashed

    • Community: abundance for all our neighbors

    • Growth: opportunity for growth, learning, experimentation

    • Cost: share cost of purchase and maintenance

    • Space: access to hundreds of tools without needing to store them

    • Knowledge: space for learning, training and workshops

    • Confidence: build skills and confidence at your own pace

We Need Volunteers , especially librarians: Sign up at SignUpGenius

and we need Donations

Operating using annual library/membership donations to defray costs of rent and insurance, with sliding scale by income, late fees, grants, and donations.

To join the Tool Library, create an account at our online library and certify that you will abide by the Liability Waiver and Indemnification Agreement, Borrower’s Agreement and Code of Conduct and in PDF. Complete the application by visiting during our hours of operation.

Please donate your membership dues online. For the first 6 months while we get going, we are asking for a donation of $20. After that, please donate what you can, such as the voluntary sliding scale membership dues schedule based on your individual income. Larger donations are definitely welcome. The upfront money will help the Tool Library buy more tools that you can borrow. There is NO additional fee to borrow tools - only if they are late or lost!
