Welcome to our virtual gear library!






  1. The gear library is closed on November 23-25. Email us to inquire about a one-on-one appointment if you need anything during this time. 
  2. Starting on January 1st, 2023 the gear library is implementing a “pay what you can” system. You may notice fees appearing on our online inventory. These fees will not be charged for any use before January 1st. 

The gear library is accepting reservations for all member types! To place a reservation, create a free account. Plan to spend 20-30 minutes during your first visit so staff can give you an onboarding orientation.
