Facebook: Please consider becoming a “fan” of the North Portland Tool Library on Facebook. We have found it easiest to communicate our upcoming workshops there. We’ll also post them here and on the calendar, but we’ve found Facebook to be the most effective for getting the word out. It’s also an easy way for you to stay connected with the most up-to-date information from us. http://www.facebook.com/pages/North-Portland-Tool-Library/129473544092
