Renew your individual membership

If you’ve been a member in the past and simply need to renew your membership, you can fill out the form below. Thanks.

STEP 1: Review our sliding scale membership fee schedule.
The West Philly Tool Library uses a voluntary sliding scale membership fee schedule. We ask that you pay between $20 and $50 per year based on your individual income. Here’s what we suggest:

Annual income Annual membership
up to $25,000 $20
$25,000 to $50,000 $30
$50,000 to $75,000 $40
above $75,000 $50

Consider becoming a Lifetime Member for $250 if you can swing it. If you’re planning on being in the neighborhood for awhile–like us–you’ll be glad you did in a few years. Plus, the upfront money will help us buy more tools that you can borrow.
