Volunteer Here!

If you want to volunteer for a specific task/time or have questions about volunteering, email info@northportlandtoollibrary.org or talk to Darin when the tool library is open.  

Great way to get involved with your community.   Bonus!  First tool selections! ( ie you get a lawn mower if it comes in! Or whatever your tool of choice is!)  Work off fines!

Saturday Front Desk.   9:00 AM — 2:00 PM   Help check tools in and out and keep the line moving.   Inspect tools and cables.  Assist in tool selection.  Socialize and have a good time! (Partial shifts are fine!)

Tuesday Evening Front Desk:  5:00 PM – 7:30 PM Help check tools in and out and keep the line moving.   Inspect tools and cables.  Assist in tool selection.  Socialize and have a good time! (Partial shifts are fine!)
