New Accounts: Going forward we're going to try something new and hopefully easier. If you want to join the North Portland Tool Library, fill out your account information online in myturn, fill out the form on the NPTL website, and bring yourself and your two pieces of ID with current address after 12pm on a Saturday and we'll squint at your documents from a distance and make your membership live.
You can either print and fill out the membership form and bring it in or fill it out online and email it--whatever works for you. We do need the form.
And please continue to wear you mask, wash those hands, and keep some physical distance from those people you don't live with. We want everyone to stay well.
We have a newish Tool Coordinator! Please welcome Christopher!
"I love tools of every kind! I particularly like working on cars and hope to grow the NPTL line up of vehicle tools.
I'm an avid do-it-yourself person with many years of experience in home repairs and projects of many kinds. I am happy to be part of the NPTL and the community it serves."
We have two FAQ sheets:
You have to be logged-in to reserve a tool. Make sure you're logged in.
You have to be logged in to modify or cancel a reservation. Make sure you're logged in.
If you are having problems using MyTurn, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you don't know if you have an account or are having problems accessing your account, please email email@example.com before creating a new account. Send us your full name and address and we'll look you up.
For all other issues, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please put on your mask and return your tools during open hours on Saturday from 9am to 2pm. You don’t need an appointment to return tools!
We request that you enter by the west gate and leave by the east gate.
We also request that after you’ve verified with a volunteer who you are and what tools you’re returning, that you put them away neatly in the annex.
