When was my tool due?

This week, we’re going to start something new here at the Tool Library: Email reminders.

Our members are awesome.  But sometimes we/they don’t always return the tools on time.  This means that other members don’t get to use them.  So starting this week, we’re going to try to help you remember.

Two days before yours tool are due, you’ll receive an email reminding you that your tools are about to be due.  And if your tool is not returned on time, you’ll receive periodic emails reminding you to return them.

Remember: tools can be borrowed for up to 7 days at a time.  Late fees accrue at $1 per tool per day that they’re overdue, not counting Fridays and Sundays (when we’re not open.)  Want to avoid late fees and email reminders?  Simply return your tools on time.
