Access over ownership

Mission

The Minnesota Tool Library’s mission is to cultivate a more resilient and equitable community and reduce waste by empowering residents with access to tools, training, and work spaces.

How does the Tool Library work?

  1. Sign up for one of our membership levels
  2. Check out any of our thousands of tools
  3. Use the workshop space
  4. Take a class

A quick reminder regarding our current hours.

*We're working on getting you more access as the summer progresses; but this contact-less system takes quite a bit more behind the scenes work for our staff. Thank You for your continued patience.In a continued effort to protect the health of our members, volunteers, and staff; MTL is adjusting our open hours and shifting library and shop operations to appointment only.
