Scholarship Fundraiser FUN!

SK8orDIY SCHOLARSHIP FUNDRAISER

In an effort to maintain our mission of affordable access, we are creating the SNTL Scholarship Fund, whereby anyone may apply to take any of our classes completely free of charge, based on financial need and desire.

The SK8orDIY Fundraiser will be a celebration of community, art, music, and thinking outside the box! Proceeds from raffle ticket sales and the silent auction will go directly into the Fund, making learning opportunities a reality for kids and adults in our community.

Why is this important, you ask?  Our society is experiencing a disconnect from hand-craft skills like woodworking or even basic home maintenance.  We’ve gone from being hardy pioneer, true DIYers, to just calling a professional or buying it on Amazon.  However, there has been a resurgence of interest in learning those skills and re-igniting the do-it-yourself spirit.  For some, this has become a hobby, for others it is out of financial necessity.  For everyone, it should be an available opportunity!

BIG LOVE to MILWAUKEE

WOW!  If you haven't been into the library this week, you may have missed the hubub as big red cases started to fill the shelves and a huge chunk of our old tools went bye-bye!  Milwaulkee Tool has generously sponsored over $7000 of tools on our wish-list; outfitting the library with the latest in cordless tool technology!  Members can look forward to (or look for excuses to) using things like:

  • Cordless Sawzalls
  • Cordless Hammerdrills - they gave us 10!!!!!
  • Cordless Bandsaws - what?!?!  That exists!
  • Cordless Circular Saws
  • Hole Saw sets
  • 4' Levels
  • Cordless JigSaws
  • ..........the list goes on........

We couldn't be happier to have this brand on our shelves - their Corporate Giving representatives went above and beyond to make us feel like customers instead of beggars, and their enthusiasm for the the library's mission and it's members shows that they really are a company that cares!  

So come on down and bask in the red-boxed glory of NEW TOOLS!!!
