South King Tool Library – Resourcefulness Personified

South King Tool Library (SKTL) lives to empower Do-It-Yourselfers. Quoting from its website, “A tool library operates much like a traditional library, allowing borrowers to check out tools and equipment to care for their homes, yards, gardens and more. People interested in borrowing tools create member accounts that allow them access to their tool library’s inventory. By sharing tools, we all benefit by saving money and space, gaining access to tools needed to DIY and reducing consumption and waste.” Vintage Grabber Thrift Shop Find

Like so many other businesses and non-profits, SKTL was forced to close because of COVI19. And, in a magnificent embodiment of its mission and spirit, it’s turned on a dime and found creative ways to continue serving its community.

“Starting June 1st,

we will be opening for curbside pickup/checkout of prearranged tool ‘orders.’

Hours will be: Saturday 11-1, Monday 11-1, Wednesday 4-6

Browse our Inventory website when you login to:

Or contact us at  253-237-2290 or if you don’t find a tool you need!”

SKTL has several options for access to tools, from a limited $0 membership and you’ll be allowed no more than 5 tools at a time for 14 days, to a $300 dollar lifetime enrollment, 25!!! tools at a time for 14 days.


It’s also offering online classes beginning June 2. And I’m particularly grateful for its Repair Cafes. Check out this terrific Seattle support.
