West Seattle Tool Library director Patrick Dunn welcomed the well-wishers and manager Micah Summers wielded the scissors as the Tool Library’s new location officially opened for business – as in, borrowing – this morning. The Tool Library moved from one “ridge” to another – from its original location at South Seattle Community College on Puget Ridge, to Youngstown Cultural Arts Center on Delridge. One major feature of the new space – an area for workshops and tool-use lessons:

This morning, that space was home to a regular Tool Library feature, a Saturday morning “Ask The Expert” session with local sustainability specialists. And a cheery whiteboard in the new space lays out the rules for Tool Library users old and new:

The Tool Library will celebrate its first anniversary this June. And they’re still accepting donations – as we mentioned earlier today, if you see this before 3 pm and take one to the Sustainable West Seattle tent at the West Seattle Nursery open house, you get $5 off a WSN purchase. Regular hours at the Tool Library remain 9 am-2 pm Saturdays, 1-5 pm Sundays (so if you haven’t been to the new location yet, you can check it out tomorrow!).

  2. So excited for the new space! This community service is amazing and greatly appreciated by this apartment dweller as I have NO space to keep yard tools inside! When I first moved into my new place, the small yard in front had been very neglected and the overgrown holly bush made it look like something out of the evil forest of Snow White (my sister referred to my new home as the “Burbs” house). The amazing people at the tool library not only lent me the right tools to tackle everything, but really took the time to show me how to safely and easily use them….The yard looks great now and I do not get attacked by thorny leaves every time I come home with groceries… My neighbors greatly appreciate the new look as well :-)
