In August 2012, the Center for a New American Dream presented a free webinar about how to start up a new tool library in your community. Topics included obtaining funding, finding a location, tracking tools, navigating through legal issues, and more. The webinar featured speakers from successful tool libraries around the country.
- Mike Froehlich – Founder, West Philly Tool Library (Philadelphia, PA)
- Jason Hatch – Founder, North Portland Tool Library (Portland, OR)
- Pete McElligott – Founder, Berkeley Tool Lending Library (Berkeley, CA)
- Ty Yurgelevic – Founder, Temescal Tool Lending Library (Oakland, CA)
