It all started when…

Since June of 2010, The West Seattle Tool Library has provided donation-based access to over a 3,000 tools to any resident in our community. Over 4,000 residents have taken the Tool Library up on that offer and formed a great community of DIYers, makers, and students. We invite you to join the community as well.

The West Seattle Tool Library is a community-led project to provide pay-what-you-can community access to a wide range of tools, training, and relevant advice.

By providing this service, the West Seattle Tool Library aims to inspire its community to participate in community projects such as park restorations and pursue sustainability through fun projects like backyard gardens, home energy improvements, and water harvesting.
