What we're about

Since June of 2010, The West Seattle Tool Library has provided free access to over a 1,500 tools to any resident in our community who can show a couple forms of ID and sign their name. Over 450 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 Tool Library and its 500 square foot workshop are both member-run. All are welcome. No tool, workshop, or DIY experience necessary. Whatever you could bring to the group will be appreciated!


Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, 4408 Delridge Way SW, Seattle, WA, 98106

Thursdays 6pm-9pm
