$15 – Monthly Memberships

Monthly memberships allow you access to up to 8 tools a week, the ability to reserve shop space for personal use, and classes taught by members of the community.


$25 – $50 Yearly Memberships

Yearly memberships are charged on a graduated scale based on your income.  For example, if you make $30,000 a year you would pay $30.  $25 is the minimum charge for a yearly membership and they offer the same benefits as monthly memberships.


$250 – Lifetime Memberships

Lifetime members enjoy everything the library offers indefinitely!  Same benefits as yearly and monthly memberships, but you only pay once.  Offered for a limited time only.


$50 – Yearly Gift Memberships

Give the gift of over 800 tools to those you love with our gift memberships!  Perfect for holidays and birthdays.
