The TIOLI in its new location is really taking off. More leavers and takers than ever!


The “Take-It-or-Leave-It”—T.I.O.L.I.—shed
Tuesday, September 2, 2014
by Bill Kuebler

The TIOLI Shed, located at the Farmer’s Market, will be open Saturday mornings from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon, May until November (October 25 will be our last open day) .  Our new location is in the train station parking lot behind the Shell station.  Only New Castle residents are allowed to leave items in the shed. Volunteers can ask to see ID. Residents and non residents alike can take things from the shed.  The new wood shed is larger and more user friendly than the old one. It does not leak and we can put nails in to hang and better display merchandise. The drop off area is easier to use. And the parking, of course, is amazing.
