North Portland Tool Library
Do you live in North Portland? Do you need to borrow a branch saw to finish that pruning job? A grading rake to get further on the walking path project you keep putting off? A circuit tester to make sure you’re not overloading your power with that new big screen TV? Well, you are in luck.
North Portland has its own tool lending library and it is celebrating it’s one year anniversery with over 300 brand new tools it will lend out to residents for free. Yes people, FREE! The brainchild of Jason Hatch, Matt Moritz, Laura Dalton, and Jason Henshaw, the tool library is there to help maintain affordability and build community by providing these free resources to residents of North Portland. The library also offers different hands on workshops to the community to instruct people on the proper use of tools and tool safety.
The North Portland Tool Library is open to any resident of North Portland. Tool checkout is free and tools can be checked out for up to 10 days. That is a great deal for someone needing something small.
Come celebrate the NPTL’s 1 year anniversary on October 29 at their facility on 2209 N. Schofield, Portland.
Lastly, the NPTL is featured in October’s issue of This Old House magazine. Way to go Portland.
