Tool Library

Book + Tool Libraries

Spiral Living Center’s Resource Library has over 1650 books relating to homesteading, rural skills, and sustainable living. All Spiral Living Members may borrow books for 2 weeks after paying a $10 library fee. This fee covers maintenance of the books and library and utilities. Our library is located upstairs in the barn at Frog Farm in Takilma.

As of January 2021, our on-site library is closed due to public health concerns. While the library is closed, our goal is to work with 1-2 volunteers from the same household to help begin a cataloging project, documenting genres and titles into a database.

We are currently working on putting together a Tool Rental “library” also at Frog Farm, that will be available to our SLC Members. Tools include but are not limited to: shovels, rakes, garden hoes, wheel barrows, electric saws, small hand tools, and etc.

We accept old, broken, or dull tools that can be repaired and available to borrow. New tools are always welcome. One of our main upgrades for 2021 is building a Tool Shed that will safely store our items for this library and for our IV Gleaning Project.

Have tools or volunteer time to donate? Contact our Executive Director Deb Lukas at spiral@spiralliving.org. Want to become a Spiral Living Center Member and access both of these libraries? Learn more on our Membership Page.
