Our Space

The Capitol Hill Tool Library has about 640 sq ft of workshop space and 800 sq feet of tool storage, right in the heart of Capitol Hill. Find us down Crawford Place alley and look for the sandwich boards on both sides. The Tool Library has a garage-style window.

The inventory storage space is through the workshop in the back corner of the parking garage. Tools are organized by letter-area and shelf-number, going up from 0 on the floor to 5 on the highest shelf. Online inventory searches include each tool’s letter and shelf number.
