The Southeast Seattle Tool Library

Tool Library Gift Certificates

Give friends and family a gift they can use all year - a membership to the tool library! Purchase an attractive gift certificate at the tool library or send us an email and we can mail it to a local address with some fascinating literature describing our purpose and hours. Your gift is tax deductible and keeps the doors open at this wonderful community resource. Or just spread the word to let folks know we're here. Many people have never even heard of the tool library concept and are thrilled when they learn about it. So go ahead - make someone's day!

December Holiday Closures

The tool library will be closed Saturday December 24th and 31st. Staffing is still being discussed for Wednesday, December 21st. Stay tuned for updates.

Closed on Sundays until Next Spring As the temperatures cool down and traffic slows at the tool library, we've dropped Sunday hours until next Spring. We'll still be open during our normal Wednesday and Saturday hours for Fall and Winter.

Bring us tools for the Sharehouse!

We are proud to announce that SESTL is working with The Sharehouse to provide basic toolkits for their clients as they establish themselves in their new homes. We found ourselves with an abundance of small, common tools, and decided this is an ideal way to put them to use in the community.

The Sharehouse can use:

  • hammers
  • screwdrivers
  • wrenches
  • paintbrushes
  • tape measures
  • scissors
  • levels
  • nails

The Sharehouse is a furniture bank for families and individuals who are transitioning from homelessness into permanent housing. Last year, The Sharehouse, working with other agencies, helped 2,342 people (including 954 children under 18) establish 1,166 new households.
