The South King Tool Library is proud to work toward barrier-less access to tools, classes, workshops & events. 

Membership is now FREE! All donations support our programs & allow us to sustain this model. Volunteering your valuable time is another way that you can contribute to this accessible model. Give the value you get! We ask members to consider making a feasible annual donation to help with operating costs. We accept donations through credit, cash, or check. 

We do reserve the right to limit checkouts, suspend memberships, & hold individuals responsible for non-returned or damaged items. 

Our goal is to have as many tools as possible in circulation at any time & for checkouts to be effective for the borrower. Damaged or long overdue items prevent that & could affect the amount of tools per loan or the duration of a loan for a violating member.
