New northeast Seattle tool library open house tonight

December 1st, 2012 by Mike

A new shared tool library, serving northeast Seattle, will hold an open house from 7-10 tonight.

Jesse Card, tool library volunteer, writes:

We want to have an open house and celebrate before we start moving in tools and shelves, so come by December 1 between 7:00 pm and 10:00 p.m.

Bring a snack or drink to share, tools you’d like to donate, and see the space! There will be music and room to dance, so bring your dancing shoes!

This is a great opportunity to sign up for a membership, see our beautiful new library and workshop space, and meet current members and organizers!

The library is in space leased from the North Seattle Friends Church, at 2415 N.E. 80th St. From the Wedgwood Community Council:

The North Seattle Tool Library is a project of Sustainable NE Seattle. The Tool Library will provide free community access to tools and a wide variety of sustainable resources.
