May 7, 2015 - Tool Library Design Meeting

Do you have a DIY project you'd like to work on but you don't have space or tools for it? Welcome to the Capitol Hill Tool Library! We'll have 650 sf of workshop space when we open in the Fall!
But before you can use it, we have to design it, and we'd love your input so we can build it for the best user friendliness. We're holding an open meeting for anyone who is interested in using the tool library to tell us how they want to use it!

Also feel free to bring a small potluck item, so we'll have things to munch on as we plan!

May 13, 2015 - Tool Library Outreach Meeting

May 19, 2015 - Tool Library Building

We found a location! Thanks to the generosity of the First Covenant Church in providing a location, Sustainable Capitol Hill is proud to announce that the Tool Library is planning to open by early Fall of this year. It will be located at the Summit Building on 420 E. Pike St., with the entrance on Crawford Pl., between Pike St. and Pine St. We still have a lot of work to do, and volunteers are a key ingredient to bringing this all together. Join us for our Tool Library Building Meetings on the 3rd Tuesdays of the month. The next meeting will be on May 19. We will also be taking membership pledges, as well as donations, so if you’d like to join our community, let us know! Please drop us a line at and let us know you’d like to help!
Alternatively, you can RSVP and show up to our next steering committee meeting on May 19.

Our Current Projects

Fundamentally, we believe that there is no one solution to creating a sustainable society. Consequently, we seek a diversity of strategies and actions to improve our neighborhood. Below are a list of some of our ongoing projects; we encourage you to contact us if you would like to join in one of these groups or have other ideas or interests.
