I love the apple press from the tool library. Making apple cider is so much fun with this great press! It is a perfect activity for a beautiful fall day. I only wish it was available more often.

I've been borrowing from MUD's Tool Library for several years. One of our favorite activities when guests visit is to take them by the Tool Library to get or return tools. Our guests are always amazed at the concept itself (even friends involved in community work elsewhere have not encountered such a practical and useful resource), and then even more amazed when they actually see the Tool Library in action. Thank you MUD!

My daughter, whom I adopted three years ago, had many emotional and behaviorial issues. Amazingly, what has helped her the most has been working with her hands, and gardening. Organizations such as MUD really helped her (and me, too), understand the importance of getting your hands dirty, choosing the proper tools, designing a living space for green things, and then--drumroll please--WAITING to see how it works out. There are always surprises, and MUD teachers are available for coaching. I was born and raised in a city and my garden was a windowbox--my daughter has a larger garden, but a clueless Mom. Together with organizations like MUD, we're planting a better world, and improving ourselves in the process!
THANKS, MUD! "May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand."

Haven't. But would hope to, if they expand to Washington, D.C. Boy, do we need some more gardens.

When I wanted to start my home garden, I was overwhelmed by the initial investments needed in everything from shovels to seeds to power tools for my raised beds. Luckily, with a $20 membership in the MUD Tool Library, I was able to borrow nearly everything I needed and was able to grow food sustainably and affordably in my own back yard.

MUD is a great asset to the community of Missoula! Their truck share is a brilliant idea and the tool library is wonderfully organized. It is great to be able to check out a truck or tool when you need it. The workshops I have attended have been a lot of fun. They have great staff and are wonderfully connected to nature.

I've been involved with MUD for more than 11 years. First as a very sporadic volunteer, then a Board member for 4 years, back to a sporadic volunteer, and now as a dedicated Tool Library user. MUD has been many things during its lifespan. It will never be a traditional success nor approach perfection, yet it continues to sustain, adapt, and inspire. Thus it has achieved a paradoxical manner of success and perfection I deeply admire.

The MANY, MANY times I have saved time and more through use of tool library check outs.

Never hold another strategic planning session. EVER! Planning was meant for and should be restricted to penance for government agencies and corporate boards. Dream, theorize, talk it through, try it, keep it going or start again. That's MUD. That's how it works best.

I have been a member for several years. As an older gardener I really appreciate being able to pick up tools to use rather than buy them. Last year I bought a truck share and was able to pick up llama manure for my garden. Really liked having the truck share. MUD is an invaluable non profit to our community. My one problem is that I don't utilize my membership enough.

make sure when I purchase membership that this is logged onto their computer system so that months later I don't get email after email asking me for something so that my membership can be logged on.

The tool library has been an invaluable resource in fixing up our 100+ year old house. Not only does MUD offer a great selection of tools to borrow, they give great how-to advice.

I love having the tool library on the North Side where I live, but it would better serve MIssoula to be in a more central location.

When we purchased our first home MUD was invaluable, not only by loaning us tools, but by providing us with the information and guidance we needed to take on home projects we might have never had the confidence to pursue. Over the years we've also received valuable advice about gardening, food preservation, weatherproofing, and other sustainability measures during our visits to MUD. More than any other local organization, MUD has made us feel part of a strong, forward-looking community.
