Jennifer and Lacy were the first two renters for the brand-new West Seattle Tool Library, which opened its doors at 9 this morning on the north side of the South Seattle Community College campus. They’re borrowing tools to help build a chicken run. You are welcome to visit the Tool Library (bring 2 forms of ID to rent something) before 2 pm today – you’ll meet friendly folks like Sustainable West Seattle‘s Patrick and Gary:
They’re also planning a brief dedication ceremony around 12:30 pm, if you’d like to be on hand for that. You’re also still welcome to bring tools to donate – as long as they’re in good working condition, and not gas-powered. P.S. You can browse the Tool Library inventory online by going here. (While you’re at SSCC, note that the Northwest Wine Academy‘s summer release event continues noon-4 pm today, just steps from the Tool Library – it’s a twofer!) ADDED SATURDAY NIGHT: One more photo:
We checked back at the Tool Library in early afternoon – just missed the dedication ceremony because we got sidetracked to check out the big Harbor Avenue rescue response, but we did catch this crowd of browsers.
