1,000th-member milestone approaches for West Seattle Tool Library

Almost two and a half years ago, the West Seattle Tool Library opened its doors (WSB first-day coverage here) – and this week they’ve announced they’re on the brink of signing up their 1,000th member. They’re looking for ideas on how to mark the milestone, and also inviting you to share your Tool Library story – this update on the Sustainable West Seattle website has the details.

    The Tool Library is such an amazing part of our community. My story: “Hey, I’m helping to build an entire park by hand, and I just found out that the volunteers have to provide All of the tools. I have a huge spreadsheet to fulfill, not a lot of time, and few resources. I’m really, Really hoping you can help.” The response, “Yeah, we can do that. When do you want us to drop it off?”.
    I cannot understate what a powerful community resource the Tool Library is. Support them if you can, this is an organization that (literally) builds community.

    I just discovered the tool library! I was so happy to be able to rent a folding ladder to do a little late fall cleanup; buying a similar ladder for $300 would have been painful when I’d only use it a few times a year. I was excited to see all the other useful things the library rents and I’ll be back again soon. What a fantastic resource.

Sorry, comment time is over.
