It wasn’t long ago that we were scratching the rust off our first donated shovel and tucking it into a small little closet up at SSCC. A year later, we’ve now got our own space, complete with a full tool storage facility and a 500 square foot, Community Workshop.
Over 230 members have joined up to use a collection that’s well over 1,000 tools by now. Somewhere along the way, we even managed to receive a few decent awards and a healthy bit of acknowledgment from both local and national media. Needless to say, it’s been a fun first year!
The best part is that we think it’s only getting better! If you haven’t stopped by The Tool Library yet, we’d love to see you sometime and hear your thoughts on what this community resource should grow into. From day one, the volunteers who started The Tool Library have always felt that, in order to be successful, The Tool Library simply needed to represent the interests of those good folks who showed up to play with it. Consider this your invitation!
