Home Depot vs. ARTillery Tool Library in DC
Niell Duval and his theater company Banished? Productions run a tool library out of their multi-purpose ARTillery space in Brookland that gives DC-based artists, hobbyists, and home improvers access to tools for an afforable annual membership fee. Artists pay $50 per year + volunteer hours, while any DC area resident pays $100 per year + volunteer hours.
