About:

The South King Tool Library (SKTL) is a nonprofit organization with a current 501(c)(3) status. A Tool Library is much like a traditional Library but instead of books, we lend tools and equipment. The three primary tenets of our organization are Sharing, Training and Empowerment. We believe that by sharing tools and knowledge through training and experience, we can empower our community for the better.  


We strive to be a flat structure, community-centric organization. That means that each person engaged in SKTL’s work, whether on staff, a board member or other type of volunteer, a member or program participant, a donor of funds or in-kind support, or anyone within the communities we serve, should have equitable value and voice.
