Welcome to MUD!

Since 1981, MUD has served as a resource for Missoulians interested in living a more sustainable lifestyle. In that time, sustainability has gone from something virtually unknown to an international buzzword. Sustainability is continually evolving and we hope that MUD will continue to evolve with it, while staying true to our mission, developed years ago.  Make yourself at home!

This summer, help us keep the MUD Tool Library affordable for all. Give now.

For MUD’s 35th birthday, would you consider giving a gift to support our efforts to keep tools in the hands of those who need them? Donate online by following this link.

MUD operates one of only 67 tool libraries in the country and is the only tool lending entity of its kind in the state. We provide a shared resource of tools for Missoulians to build the community they want. This April, we extended our tool library hours and are working toward keeping the Tool Library open longer and more days each week.

MUD’s membership has more than tripled since moving to our central site in 2011.  As our membership grows, the number of low-income users is growing at a faster rate than the number of high-income users. Our goal is to keep our tool library membership affordable at less than $3 a month for those who are unable to afford a standard membership fee. It is imperative that we keep tools accessible for everyone.

When individuals have the ability to make positive changes to their homes and neighborhoods, a sustainable community emerges one project at a time.
