NE Tool Library Opens 2nd Location in St Paul

In case you missed the party last weekend (at their new St. Paul location spot next to Can Can Wonderland), celebrating the NE Minneapolis Tool Library, er, I mean the MINNEAPOLIS TOOL LIBRARY expansion, I thought I’d fill you in.

St. Paul opening party: Craft Cocktails and Tools!


For the last 2 years, the Minnesota Tool Library has been building community and saving people money.

Joining their Annual membership is a Thrifty Tip for any maker, home-owner, or random project doer (just $55/year).

In the same spirit of the sharing economy, the Minnesota Tool Library has a sustainability AND money-saving mission.  Their goal? Take all those tools in your garage that you used 1-time for a project and get rid of them! Your $55/year membership gives you FREE rental of over 2,500 tools for up to 7 days at a time.

Plus, you’ll learn a lot more about how to use them. There are regular ‘maker’ workshops that teach you home-care basics.  Members also receive 20% off classes and workshops.  Members also get access to a small, 500-sqft workshop.
