West Seattle Tool Library

Listen to the AM 1090 radio interview with Patrick Dunn, SWS treasurer and Tool Library principal.  It’s a fun and informative 5 minutes.

Stop by the West Seattle Tool Library on June 12 between 9 am and 2 pm for our Grand Opening!

Be there at 12:30 for the ribbon cutting and pizza from Red Star Pizza!!

You’ll be able to see the entire collection, check out tools, see tool demonstrations and even donate more tools if you haven’t had a chance to clean out your garage yet. All donations are tax-deductible.

The Tool Library is located on the North end of South Seattle Community College (at the horticulture area). For more information about the West Seattle Tool Library, including hours and other details, visit

What is a Tool Library?
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 a low-cost, green alternative to individual tool ownership, the West Seattle Tool Library will aim 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.

We will be tabling at the Sunday Farmers Market in the West Seattle Junction from 9:30 am through 2:00 pm for the rest of the month of May.  Tools can be dropped off at the market on Sundays and, if you miss the Sunday collection, you can bring tools by the West Seattle Tool Library during regular hours.

People who have tools that are too large to transport or cannot deliver them, can also have them picked up by volunteers. To have a tool picked up, please email Patrick at .

The West Seattle Tool Library is a project of Sustainable West Seattle and was made possible by a neighborhood grant from the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods.
