What is a tool library? Just like a normal library, a tool library is a sustainable public service that provides community access to tools and an exchange of knowledge, at little to no cost.

The Ballard Tool Library, 7549B – 15th Ave NW, began operations on January 28th!  The Tool Library is open ten hours each week:

  • Sundays, Noon to 5pm
  • Tuesdays, 11am to 2pm
  • Thursdays, 6pm to 8pm

Our Vision

The Ballard Tool Library will promote a sharing economy, mutual reliance, and environmental stewardship for our community.

Our Mission

To build community by sharing tools, ideas, and know-how.

How Do I Join?

Just become a member of Sustainable Ballard and then stop by the Tool Library during open hours and sign a waiver. Easy Peasy!
