From miter saws to juice machines, the Tool Library is a Ballard kind of place.

The Ballard Tool Library works like a normal library, but for tools.

Here you’ll find the usual run-of-the-mill drills and saws as well as sewing machines, juicers, marlinspikes, compost aerators, and many other dealy-bobs and whatchamacallits. Their aim is to build a collection of tools that everyone in Ballard – artists, craftspeople… or just plain putterers – can use.

The Tool Library is located at:

7549B 15th Ave NW
Seattle, WA 98117

With these open hours:

Sunday, 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Tuesday, 11:00 am – 1:00 pm
Thursday, 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm
