Four+ of our most important rules:

  3. Only use tools that you feel SAFE using!
  4. Tools may ONLY be used for non-commercial purposes.
  5. (And sorry, no tool reservations or waiting lists.)

We will ask you for a voluntary Enrollment Donation to help us keep things in operation (to buy & maintain tools for the library).
