WHAT IS A TOOL LIBRARY?

A tool library is just like a normal library, but with tools instead of books. We lend household, yard, and specialty tools to our members with the goal of promoting reuse, access, and shared knowledge.

MEMBERSHIP

Tacoma Tool Library operates on a membership basis. Members are asked to give a suggested yearly donation of $40/year, which gives them access to the Library's tool bank and workshops.

 WORKSHOPS & EVENTS

In addition to lending tools, the Tacoma Tool Library hosts workshops and events at our headquarters on MLK Way. We are always looking for new ideas of workshops to offer, and would love to hear from you!
