Hello, and welcome to the Ballard Tool Library's online tool catalog brought to you by MyTurn! Feel free to browse our inventory here, or visit our official website www.ballardtoollibrary.org for more information on memberships, volunteer opportunities, and more!

Due to COVID-19, we are currently operating by appointment only. Please contact manager@ballardtoollibrary.org or text (206) 890-5653. Typical response times are 24 to 48 hours.


How Can I Join?

Easy!  As a supporting member of Sustainable Ballard, your membership is free! If you are not a member of Sustainable Ballard, you need an annual membership  ($35 Individual, $60 Household, or $100 Sustaining), sign up here.

Then schedule an appointment with the manager (manager@ballardtoollibrary.org) to meet at the library, sign our waiver and you can start borrowing tools right away! Tool rentals range from $1-$10 per tool per week. 



We can schedule an appointment at a convenient time for you. We are flexible. Arrange an appointment by email to Kimberly Lindbergh at manager@ballardtoollibrary.org or text (206) 890-5653

We schedule an appointment day and time that works for you, when your appointment is confirmed, Kimberly Lindbergh, the Tool Library Manager, will meet you at that time and open the Library. Appointment slots are for one member only.

If you are new to Sustainable Ballard and prefer to come into the Library to sign up for a membership, you should allow extra time. If you are a Sustainable Ballard member, but have not used the Tool Library before, you will create a Library login, receive a copy of our Tool Use Policy, sign a waiver and provide ID.

We have a sale shelf of low priced tools which are overstocked at the Library. We also appreciate donations and will provide you a tax receipt for your records.
