Open Four Days a Week

BallardToolLogoWe are so happy to be part of the Ballard community and hope you’ll stop by soon to visit and learn what we’ll all about.

Ballard Tool Library is a project of Sustainable Ballard. This project is funded in part by a Neighborhood Matching Fund award from Seattle Department of Neighborhoods

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, 2018!  The Tool Library is open ten hours each week:

  • Saturdays, 9am to 11am (starting 9/8/2018)
  • Sundays, 2pm to 5pm
  • Tuesdays, 11am to 1pm
  • Thursdays, 5pm 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.
