The Carlisle Tool Library will celebrate its first anniversary with the Cement Mixer, a fundraising gala.
The benefit will be held from 6 to 10 p.m. April 26 at the Carlisle Ribbon Mill. The event features live music provided by Side of Yams, food provided by Laurel Mountain catering, a beer and wine bar and a silent auction featuring donations from the organization’s community partners.
“Guests are sure to enjoy the event, as well as the remarkable outpouring of community spirit the Tool Library represents,” said Mary Olin-Geiger, Tool Library event coordinator. “I invite everyone with an interest in supporting our organization, as well as those just looking for a good time to attend.”
A different type of library that provides both information and the tools to learn skills opened its doors at 735 Factory St. April 2 in Carlisle.
The Tool Library event committee expects 200 people to attend.
All proceeds from the event will support the Tool Library’s operational costs and help the organization expand its educational offerings.
“Events like this are essential to organizations like ours,” said Tool Library President Jeff Adams. “Support like this is what enables us to provide tools and expertise to the community.”
Tickets may be purchased from the Tool Library directly as well as online at the Tool Library’s website, carlisletoollibrary.org/cementmixer. Tickets are $45, and they can be purchased up until the day of the event.
The Tool Library was founded in April 2018 to provide Cumberland and surrounding counties with the tools and expertise to conquer household problems. In addition to a selection of hand and power tools, the Tool Library also offers classes, as well as a workshop space equipped with a variety of saws. With annual memberships starting at $25, the Tool Library can be joined online and in person.
