We’re Not Your Typical Library

sandwich_boardThe Southeast Seattle Tool Library provides community access to a wide variety of tools, training, and other resources while also pursuing sustainability. Beyond being a library, we are also a  community hub. We aim to inspire our neighbors to participate in both personal and neighborhood projects while building a more trusting and vibrant community.

Coming Soon

We will soon open a Community Workshop which will be a comfortable, welcoming place to figure out how to build that window seat or fix that weed whacker. We are also working on a schedule of classes geared toward helping you learn how to tackle your dream projects. Finally, beginning in June, we will begin opening on Sunday late afternoons–our third day of open hours.
