SE Portland Tool Library
Like the public library... but for tools and seeds.
SEPTL is a free community resource that provides home and business owners, and tenants, with hand and power tools they need to perform simple maintenance, tend to yards and gardens, and build awesome projects – while along the way meeting and sharing with neighbors.
Saturdays 9am to noon
* * NEW LOANS BY APPOINTMENT ONLY! (See below) * *
For your safety and that of our volunteers and other members:
Masks are required at all times,
Maintain a minimum 6 ft social distancing
Only 4 members are allowed inside at a time, so a heavy dose of patience may be required
If possible please come alone and do not bring other household members or friends with you.
Please check the Our Tools page before you come in to borrow to know exactly what's available, and for some tools their Shelf Number.
The loan period is temporarily doubled to 14 days. Of course 7 day returns are very welcome!
To maximize tool availability for everyone, renewals are limited to 1.
NOTE: If you are returning tools only and NOT borrowing, you do NOT need an appointment.
