We Need a Few More Volunteers!
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in volunteering for the tool library helping keep our doors open or repairing tools! No minimum per-month time commitment, tool expertise is not necessary-- just a willingness to learn and an eagerness to help out your neighbors.
Welcome to the Tool Library!
The Southeast Seattle Tool Library is a non-profit organization where you can borrow tools for home maintenance, woodworking, gardening, and creative projects of all kinds. This website lets everyone browse our tool collection and, if you are a member, see what tools you have checked out. For more information about the organization, including how to become a member, please see our main site at setools.org, send us an email, or just drop by and chat with our friendly volunteer tool librarians during our open hours and we'll get your membership set up on the spot!
