About Tacoma Tool Library

Location:

1100 Court F, Tacoma, WA 98402, US

Mission Statement

Tacoma Tool Library lowers the barriers to tackling projects by providing tools, knowledge, space and support so that people can improve their lives. Our work will lead to empowered individuals, increased involvement, reduced consumption, more entrepreneurship, better looking neighborhoods, a stronger sharing economy, and a more resilient community.

Description

The library provides low cost access to shared tools and other durable goods, and encourages re-use, repair, and reduced consumption. In addition, it hosts a safe community space for learning how to use household tools, and empowers Tacoma residents to care for their homes and neighborhoods, house by house and block by block.

Want to borrow tools? It’s easy and low-cost to become a member. Members can borrow any of our 1,700+ available tools-everything from hammer drills to hand weeders-for a week with no charge. Use the tools, clean them, and return them to the library when you’re done. That’s it!

Tacoma Tool Library is fiscally sponsored by Zero Waste Washington.
