I love MUD and find the classes and tool shed an important part of helping community members move towards sustainable living. I have taken workshops and rented the truck for compost hauls. Keep up the good work.

I live on the North Side of Missoula and am a home owner here. One of the vital elements that makes us feel deeply at home in our hood is the TOOL LIBRARY. We use the tool library for many a home renovation, big or small and have, for a number of years in a row now, utilized the cider press to makes loads of apple cider. Many of our neighbors are our friends and it is a common experience in the hood that home renovation is more possible because we have access to tools of every kind at the TOOL LIBRARY. Not only do they have a wide variety of tools, they are great tools, they work and the volunteer help is warm, enthusiastic and engaged. In my experience, the TOOL LIBRARY does much more than simply make renovation projects possible that might otherwise not be... it is an epicenter of community. The TOOL LIBRARY is a model that sparks community and sustainability. In a national economy based, too often, on planned obsolescence, consumption and individualism... the TOOL LIBRARY is a microcosmic counterpoint and a life-giving alternative.

Create campaigns/funds to replicate the tool library in neighborhood centers throughout Missoula, not just the North/West-side.

MUD is a great, uniquely Missoula organization. They have helped me with tools/equipment to make countless home repairs as well as apple cider, and plant my garden every year. They are an invaluable service to the average "underfunded" Missoulian homeowner.

MUD is a really fantastic organisation. They have been active in the Missoula community long enough to become a local institution, and from personal experience, their tool library is a one-of-a-kind asset for low and medium income home owners. Thanks, MUD!

The tool library is an incredible resource for the neighborhood. It has saved us hundreds of dollars in tools. We have been able to increase the value of our historic house (1906!) and by default the value of our neighborhood because of MUD. Thanks!

This place is awesome! I have borrowed many great tools from the tool library and have also borrowed the truck! I think it is a great way to promote sustainable living. I mean, we don't all need a grass seed spreader, right? Sharing is awesome!

I joined MUD over a year ago and just rejoined at the end of 2010. MUD's annual Garden Party was the very first event that I went to after moving to Missoula in the fall of 2009. What an extraordinary community of DIY gardeners, carpenters, artists, and best of all, neighbors.

Mud is a very helpful resource to our community. I have personally been a member of the MUD Tool Library for a few years, & without it I know our home would be falling apart. I've borrowed lawn mowers, painting tools, plastering tools, saws, and so much more to help maintain, repair, &
weatherize our home. We could never have afforded to purchase all of these tools, but our membership fees allowed us to be able to share them through MUD. The staff is always friendly, & I wish I had more time to attend their excellent demonstrations.

I only wish that their hours were longer, but I know that the volunteers are extremely busy. I also wish that their fundraising events were alcohol-free.
