Donations accepted May 17 for Tacoma Tool Library

The Tacoma Tool Library invites local residents to donate their extra hammers, saws, wrenches, drills, and other tools to help build a local lending library for Tacoma Do-It-Yourselfers.

According to the group’s Web site, the project aims to provide low-cost or free access to shared tools and other durable goods, and encourages re-use, repair, and reduced consumption. In addition, the Tacoma Tool Library hopes to create a safe community space for learning how to use household tools and empower Tacoma residents to care for their homes and neighborhoods.

The Tacoma Tool Library is a project of Zero Waste Washington and a Spaceworks Tacoma program participant.

Organizers will host the Tool Drop Off Day on Sun., May 17, between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., at 1120 Creative House, located at 1120 Pacific Ave., in downtown Tacoma.
