Gear Lending Library

The Gear Lending Library, part of the Montezuma Inspire Coalition and managed by the School Community Youth Collaborative, is a youth-run library designed to lend outdoor gear to local organizations and individuals that take children, youth, and families on outdoor trips. While we are surrounded by the great outdoors, the proper gear is a barrier to truly enjoying the experience. We hope to remove the barrier by providing gear to local organizations and individuals so that children, youth, and families can experience the outdoors.

If you are wondering if the Gear Lending Library is right for you and your family, the answer is YES! The GLL is for everyone who wants to try outdoor gear without the commitment of making a purchase. Best of all it is easy to make a reservation to borrow our gear.

  • Gear requests are fulfilled in order of submitted reservation forms. Supplies are limited.
  • There is a $10 refundable reservation fee due at the time of gear pick up. The $10 deposit will be refunded when all gear is returned in good condition.
  • Fall and Winter hours (starting September 19th) – Gear pickups are by reservation only Monday and Thursday between 4:30pm -6pm.
  • A completed and signed liability form is due when gear is picked up for all reservations. Click on the button below to access the form prior to pickup.
