is OPEN for the season—find us at the transfer station from 9-noon every Saturday!

 The tool library works just like a regular library; Northfield residents can get a "library card" by showing the volunteer at the tool shed a driver's license or other proof of residency and filling out a borrower's agreement and waiver, and then can check out a tool for one week. We ask that tools be returned between 9 am-10 am the following Saturday so that someone else can check them out that same day.  The service is free.

 New to us tools include: a leaf shredder, wood chipper (can handle branches with a diameter of 2" or less), a heat gun, a router with table, concrete tools, tile tools and a tile saw, painting/ drywall repair tools, several circular saws, and a power washer. THANK YOU, Northfielders; your generously donated tools are being used, and are much appreciated!
