PNA Tool Lending Library
A great PNA Member benefit!

Half of doing any job well is having the right tools. In addition to providing professional references and DIY advice, the PNA's Tool Lending Library, located in the Phinney Neighborhood Center's brick building, shares thousands of tools with our neighbors to help them do that job right! PNA members may borrow tools for a modest suggested weekly tool maintenance fee. Reduced tool fees are available for low-income households.


Not a member? You can join the PNA when you check out a tool or join online here.

PNA Fixers Collective

Don’t throw that broken gadget out. Fix it!


The PNA Fixers Collective is a pretty informal group of folks who meet up simply for the fun of taking stuff apart, putting it back together again, and maybe even fixing some things in the process. The general idea is just to take a moment before throwing something away to figure out if you can save it somehow and prevent yourself from having to buy a replacement. It's also an excellent way to learn how things work and just enjoy some good company!


Join us on the first Wednesday of every month, 6-8 pm, at Greenwood Hardware, 7201 Greenwood Ave N. You can bring something broken along with you or just bring yourself. Either way, we'll see you there!
