Minnesota Tool Library
Wood · Sculpture · Textiles
MTL is a volunteer-driven member cooperative that provides access to tools, training, and shared workspace. We pool and share resources with each other to reduce our environmental footprint and save money that can then be re-invested in our small businesses, homes, and neighborhoods. The core of our programming is a large inventory of hand and power tools (7,000+ items) that members can borrow for their projects. It’s part of our mission to empower artisans, makers, and crafters in their pursuits – and share tools and trade skills with one another.
Minnesota Tool Library is open on Friday & Saturday of Art-A-Whirl weekend.
Stop by Friday after 4 or anytime Saturday to take a tour of the Tool Library and learn about our collaborative. Explore our inventory and get inspired for your next project, shop our reuse merchandise and handcrafts, and check-out upcoming workshops!
