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.
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.
