How Can I Join?

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

If you prefer to come into the Library to sign up for a membership, please allow extra time. 

Once we've confirmed your Sustainable Ballard membership and you've signed the digital waiver, you can start borrowing tools right away! Tool rentals range from $1-$10 per tool per week. 



Appointments are not required. Walk-in are welcome! If you would like, you can make an appointment here. You can also find a guide to making reservations here. Our volunteers will be happy to help you find the tools you need for any job.



We appreciate donations very much and can provide you a tax receipt for your records. Appointments are required for tool donations. Please email to set up an appointment.
