SouthEast PortlandTool Library
Like the public library... but for tools

SEPTL needs new digs

We now have over 2000 members and 1200 tools…our library space is  very cramped indeed.

St. David of Wales Church has provided a wonderful place for SEPTL to begin its work, but the SEPTL Board of Directors recognize that the time has come to  search for a larger venue that will better suit the library’s needs.

An optimal space for SEPTL would possess these attributes:

  • Approximately 1,000 sq. feet
  • Provide good access to the outside so members can easily haul tools in and out
  • A heated space with some windows.
  • A multi-year lease.
  • Centrally located in inner southeast Portland
  • SEPTL can afford a monthly rent stipend, to be negotiated
  • Note that all of our tools are electric. We do not carry any gas powered tools in our inventory for liability reasons.

These parameters may seem like a tall order, but SEPTL’s Board of Directors is counting on our members and the community at large. If you  know of a space that could possibly fulfill the tool library’s needs, please contact us as soon as possible.

Ideally, SEPTL  would like to be settled into a new space this winter. Please contact us if you know of anything that can help make this move happen.
Thank You!
