Virtual Open Hours - Live Now

Join us for Virtual Open Hours every Wednesday from 5 – 7 pm! Our Staff, Board Members, and Volunteers will be available to answer any membership questions and help you find tools or make a reservation. You do not need to be present for these sessions to reserve tools, however, we do recommend new members introduce themselves.

Help Keep the Tool Library Strong

Financial Support

The Tacoma Tool Library improves quality of life in the South Sound by providing tools, education, space, and support to cultivate self-sufficiency while reducing waste. Your donation helps us develop neighborhood resiliency, reduce unnecessary consumerism, and empower individuals to build the change they want to see in the world.

Tool and Supply Donations

We accept large donations of general tools, with two exceptions: 1. No gas-powered tools, and 2. No stationary tools (large tools that are not portable).

We also take hardware donations, such as sandpaper, circular blades, jigsaw blades, trimmer line, nails and screws, etc.

Donations can be made at the Tacoma Tool Library when we are open on Wednesday 4:30pm – 7:30pm or Saturday 10am – 1pm

Have a unique tool that you would like to donate? Reach out to us via email at Please include tool details and/or pictures to help us determine if we will be able to immediately utilize the tool.

We do not accept gas-powered tools of any kind.
