It’s official. We will be open for tool-borrowing on May 1st! Come one, come all, fellow Southeast neighbors. Borrow some tools, donate some tools, maybe sign up to volunteer or share some of your ideas with us, like what kind of tools you’d like to see in the library or any workshops we can host that might come in handy. We’re located at the St David’s Episcopal Church at SE 28th and Harrison.
If opening the doors itself isn’t exciting enough, check out the Grand Opening celebration on May 15th. There will be food, refreshments, prizes and of course, tools. We’ll be holding the raffle drawing that day, so make sure you’re there if you’ve purchased a raffle ticket. (If you haven’t, get on it! They’re only $1 each, or buy in bulk with a special price of 7 for $5. Contact us if you’d like to get in on this deal.)
So far, we have graciously received the following donated prizes:
- $450 Home Energy Audit from Green Hammer
- $50 gift certificate from the ReStore Habitat for Humanity Store – a $50 gift certificate
- $25 gift card from the Urban Farm Store
- $25 gift certificate from 7 Dees Nursery on SE Powell
- $20 gift certificate from Naomi’s Organic Farm Supply in Sellwood, along with a free copy of the “NW Maritime Planting Guide”
(A really big thank-you to all of these wonderful retailers and organizations for providing these prizes. All funds raised from the sale of the raffle tickets will be used to buy new tools for the library.)
Hope to see you soon. We’ll be open before you know it!
