The Tool Library
Update and Soft Open Plans
Last year we secured funding from Ben and Jerry's to support creating a Tool Library.Our plan is a "soft" open March 1st, run for 3 months, review in May our successes and short-comings and go from there. Very Exciting!
Before we open, we wanted to cover a few bases and get an idea of who may be interested in participating and/or helping.
All ORE members will be able to borrow tools after signing a waiver.There will be No Fee other than ORE membership during our 3 month trial. There will be a minimal deposit to be returned when the tools are brought back and of course a small overdue fee if tools are late. More details in the March Newsletter.
Nuts and Bolts
We have over 80 tools including: power tools, all sorts of hand tools including wrench kits and the like, caulking guns, belt sander, wet vac, drop cloths, and tool boxes to be used for easy carry. We also have safety gear.
Location: We have a good sized closet with 2 floor to ceiling shelves, peg board, and a drop down desk just down the hall from our office @ 46 Barre St., Montpelier.
Open 4 to 6 pm on Wednesdays (maybe some time on Saturdays if we get additional volunteers.
Tool Library Needs
A step stool.
Volunteers for 1.5 hours Saturdays. You could commit to one or many over the next 3 months.
