Donate Funds

We are committed to providing access to tool and skills for all of Hamilton. This is a big job, so we need your help. Donations help us to fund special events in the community above and beyond keeping the library operational to keep our doors open. Join our community of supporters by making a donation to our registered non-profit. Every dollar we raise goes back into our community space and towards the success of our tool library. To learn more about the work we do, visit our About page.
