First-time volunteering

Thank you so much for serving your community by volunteering at the tool library!

Before arriving

If you don't already have one, create an account on our inventory management system MyTurn.


Wear close-toed shoes, and avoid dangly hair and clothing. You'll be working near heavy objects and power tools, so helps to be careful!


We're at 1552 Crawford Pl, Seattle, WA 98122, halfway down the Crawford Place alleyway between Pike and Pine in Capitol Hill. If you have trouble finding us day-of, you can call the library phone at 206-420-7005.

There are plenty of bus lines nearby. Or if you bike in, you can store your bike safely inside during your shift. On Sundays, Capitol Hill has free street parking, but otherwise you'll need to park far away to avoid expensive parking meters.

If you have any more questions

Just contact us! Either email back the tool library staffer you've already been communicating with, or email our general mailbox at
