Library Love – C-clamps, garden rakes, and jigsaws, oh my!

 It’s your day off, not raining and you hear the clarion call of the ever-present to-do list: fix thingy that makes the toilet flush, build a bookcase for stacks living on the floor, repair wonky stairs… it goes on and on.

Money to buy the implements needed to construct/destruct/obstruct is in short supply.  Maybe there is a tool library in your area like the Northeast Portland Tool Library, in Portland, Oregon.  Build community.  Borrow.  Donate (more tools or time).  Learn how-to-use power tools.  Get involved.  It’s what libraries are all about.

    • that would be great frank! keep us posted… in fact, if you’re so inclined, you could update the wikipedia tool libraries page if you find one near you.

  1. No way! I have no idea why, but the thought never crossed my mind. This is freaking awesome! I always knew I loved PDX, but the more I learn about it, the cooler it is. 🙂
