Tool libraries

In Seattle, tool lending libraries include (all links external): the Ballard Tool Library, Capitol Hill Tool Library, Northeast Seattle Tool Library, Phinney Neighborhood Association Tool Lending Library, Southeast Seattle Tool Library and West Seattle Tool Library. Tool libraries within the Seattle city limits generally are supported or promoted more directly by the City of Seattle and other organizations, rather than King County.

This March 2014 Seattle Times EcoConsumer columnDownload PDF 33 K by King County’s Tom Watson describes tool lending libraries and the local tool library movement. Tom wrote the EcoConsumer column for the Times from 2005 to 2015.
