Members must be 18 years old, or have the signed consent of their parent or guardian to join the Auckland Library of Tools (ALoT).
Before borrowing tools every member must:
create a MyTurn account;
sign the Liability Waiver Form;
review and sign the tool use policy form; and
have their identity and address verified by an ALoT staff member or volunteer.
An ALoT staff member may assist in explaining how to operate tools, but a member confirms by taking possession of any tool that they are capable to using the tool safely and properly.
While ALoT is committed to maintaining all tools, it is not responsible for any defects in any borrowed tools.
If a member borrows a tool and learns that the tool has become unsafe or is in a state of disrepair, that member must immediately discontinue use of the tool, return the tool to ALoT, and notify the Library of the issue.
Only ALoT members are authorised to use ALoT tools and equipment.
Members will not be charged for borrowing tools.
The standard loan period of any tool is one week, however, this may be shorter for rare and/or high demand tools.
Only ALoT-marked tools are borrowable. Tools belonging to Hackland cannot be taken off-site by either ALoT or Hackland members.
All tools borrowed are to be returned to the ALoT by close of business on the date that the tool is due to be returned.
If a tool is returned late, the Member will pay a late fee. MyTurn describes late fees for each tool. Late fees are $0.50 per day. Late fees are capped at the full replacement cost of the tool, plus a $5 admin fee in the case of missing or damaged tools.
ALoT may charge a Member to replace a tool, charging the Member for the full replacement cost plus an administrative fee of $5, if that Member damages a tool or does not return a tool.
Fines in excess of $10 must be paid in full before borrowing additional tools.
ALoT reserves the right to take appropriate steps to retrieve damaged or unreturned tools or unpaid fines and fees. In such situations, the ALoT reserves the right to revoke membership and take legal action. AloT also reserves the right to forgive fees at its discretion.
Members may renew a tool if no other member has reserved that tool. Tools may be renewed twice. ALoT reserves the right to refuse or limit renewals and may do so based on demand.
All tools are to be returned clean and in the same or better condition as they were when issued, excluding normal wear and tear. Members must pay for damage to, or for the loss of, any tool in their possession and accept ALoT’s assessment of fair restitution for damage, dirtiness, delinquency, or loss of a tool in part or whole. A restitution amount may equal the full replacement cost of the tool plus a $5.00 administrative fee.
I have read and fully understand the rules and regulations of the Auckland Library of Tools as set out in this Member’s Agreement and Tool Use Policy and I understand that failure to comply with any of these rules may result in revocation of my borrowing privileges, legal action against me, or both. I have also read and signed a Liability Waiver form relinquishing any and all claims against ALoT and associated bodies.
