Have you met our Steering Committee? The GTL is run by a small staff and group of dedicated volunteers. We’d like to take the next few weeks to introduce the people who help make the tool library great, and show you the faces behind the masks.😷Thirza is a connector, curator, and collector of experiences and ideas (and things). With a jack-of-all trades like experience in a variety of fields, Thirza helps with operations and hosts the GTL’s podcast, The Crow’s Nest. Thirza is passionate about living self-sufficiently and waste-free. They’re obsessed with garbage and will take anything if it means saving it from a landfill. Please don’t ask them though as she’s been banned from bringing any more home. In their spare time, they work on their school bus tiny home, Espe.If you’re picking up buttons from the #PinASmileOn program, you’ll meet Thirza at our front desk! See MoreSee Less

Starting this week, we’re staying open later to serve you better! We’re now open from 4 pm-7pm on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Time slots are still required for reservations, and you must pre-book your tools a minimum of 48 hours in advance. As the situation progresses, we hope to continue to expand our hours. If these times conflict with your schedule, you can arrange delivery through our free service. You’ll still need to book a time slot, but our delivery coordinator will arrange a drop off time that suits both schedules.
