THE EAST PORTLAND TOOL LIBRARY LENDS TOOLS TO AREA RESIDENTS OF ALL INCOME LEVELS. OUR MISSION IS TO EMPOWER OUR NEIGHBORS TO BUILD A SUSTAINABLE AND THRIVING COMMUNITY.
We are sorry for the ongoing closures. Unfortunately, our fiscal sponsoring agency allowed our insurance coverage to lapse.
EPTL is working hard to get back open to serve you! Thank you for your patience.
Next Board Meeting: 7pm Monday, December 11th at CPUM
THANK YOU EPTL VOLUNTEERS!
Saturday Shift Volunteers: Al, Alex, Chuck, Kristin, Maggie, Shawn, Zvi.
