Posted on:

We regularly host community events for members or the public (for example: Repair Cafés) and often need extra hands to help with logistics and support before/during/after the event. This can include postering and promotion, event setup, greeting and registration, food prep and service, teardown, and other functions.
Like to engage with people and share our vision? The OTL is often at farmer’s markets, festivals, and other community events to reach the public about the existence and benefits of the tool library, but also the wider sharing economy and our goals of ecology and self-sufficiency.
Event volunteering at outreach events is a low level commitment and a great way to meet other enthusiastic OTL volunteers and also perfect for getting volunteer hours for school.
