Ballard Tool Library

toollibraryTool Library

We’d love to see a Tool Library in Ballard.   A tool library is a lending library for common tools, typically community-run.  Phinney Center and West Seattle have been operating successful Tool Libraries for years, and we’d like to mirror these successful models for Ballard.

A group of volunteers is meeting every other Saturday from 11AM to Noon in the Nyer Urness House Community Room – watch our event calendar for dates.

There are many ways to help!

  • Submit your tool suggestions here
  • Make a donation to support the project here
  • Do you have ideas for where to house the library?  Contact our project lead
  • Join the planning team that meets every other Saturday at Nyer Urness House to discuss location, inventory, funding and the management of the library
