The tool lending library is like a public library, except for borrowing tools and other non-media items. 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

Please donate your membership dues online. Please donate what you can, such as this 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!

Remember that the tools you are borrowing belong to the whole community – care for them, bring them back, and stay honest.
