OUR MISSION

The Richmond Tool Library is a free service that lends tools to Richmond residents with the goal of providing opportunities to be self-sufficient, to take agency over their neighborhoods, and to work towards a more sustainable Richmond, California.

OUR VISION 

Together we will build a sense of community by working collaboratively with neighbors on revitalization projects and by joining forces with the city partners towards a shared vision. Through this resource we will reinforce local resilience and collective ownership of this beautiful city by the Bay.

Volunteer at the Richmond Tool Library

From the beginning, the Richmond Tool Library has always had the spirit of volunteerism at its core. Volunteers are an important part of our program. The RTL is looking for volunteers to help us run the library. If you are interested in volunteering at the Tool Library, fill out our Volunteer Application and email us at toollib@ci.richmond.ca.us to let us know you're interested. We have a variety of roles for any community member who is interested. We are looking, in particular, for volunteers with tool repair experience and staffers!
