Booth: 2057

Company Description:

The Minnesota Tool Library is a cooperative, volunteer-driven nonprofit that offers our community Access Over Ownership. Our mission is to empower each other, reduce waste and improve communities by sharing tools, trade skills and shop space. We believe you don’t need to privately own costly tools that clutter cupboards, basements and garages... it's a waste of space, money and resources that could be better utilized by building in community.

Instead we share tools and trade skills with one another. MTL'ers enjoy low-cost access to the tools we need to repair and maintain our homes, build our businesses, and invest in our communities, by borrowing items from our shared library. It's as simple as checking out a book - and our inventory is vast. We also have a workshop at each branch where you can work on your projects and access large and specialty power tools like our table saw, jointer, and lathe in-house. Moreover, we engage each other to expand our collective skill set - offering both formal classes and informal mentoring and project advice. Everyone from novice to skilled craftsperson is welcome - we'll help you along the way. Whether you're looking to tackle some home-improvement tasks, enjoy a hobby, build a business, or try that Pinterest project - we have the tools, shared space, and support to help make your DIY dreams a reality.

The Tool Library's branches are located in Northeast MPLS (Central &18th) and the NorthEnd Neighborhood (Dale/Como) of St. Paul.
