Tools and the Power to use them.

The North Portland Tool Library (NPTL) is a community resource dedicated to building community and fostering sustainability by providing residents with tools and the power to use them. We loan a wide variety of tools to community members free of charge. The NPTL benefits North Portland residents by reducing the costs of maintaining and improving the places in which we live, work, and play. The NTPL support diverse, livable neighborhoods and fosters community pride.


Canceled.   Tonight’s Repair Cafe, scheduled for Kenton Firehouse has been canceled.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you but look forward to seeing you in Oct/Nov when we get a new date.   Thank you, and keep sharing out there.



We need LOTS of volunteers for our fundraiser.  This year we are selling and serving food so we need food handlers and folks with liquor certs to come aid us in our fundraiser.   These are short shifts which will give you time to enjoy the evening and help us throw a great party!!  Thank you in advance.   NPTL Board
