Need a tool? Borrow it from the library!

The West Seattle Tool Library may be a too-well-kept secret! If you find yourself in need of an expensive tool that you never likely to need again, borrowing it from the library may be the way to go.

Located in the back of the building at 4408 Delridge Way SW (Youngstown Cultural Arts Center), the tool library is the brainchild of Sustainable West Seattle. Just like a traditional library where you can check out books, the tool library allows you to check out tools for a week at a time on a pay-what-you-can basis. Those who want to help sustain the library can become members and/or donate good, used tools.

Even better, library volunteers offer classes and tutorials to teach you how to use various tools properly.

This is DIY without the loneliness.
