Power tools spend most of their year working hard and trying to be safe... then they get drunk and drag race at the Georgetown Carnival.

The Greater Seattle Bureau of Fearless Ideas, formerly 826 Seattle, is planning to set up shop in our neck of the woods with a new location in White Center! Having thoroughly covered space travel up in Greenwood, is there any chance that the new storefront will have a robotics/makerspace theme?
826 Seattle Changes Its Name to the Bureau of Fearless Ideas - And as Part of Its Commitment to Fearlessness, Breaks Off from 826 National and Expands into White Center with Another Tutoring Space - Everything you need to know about Seattle's literary scene is in The Stranger. Readings calendar, book reviews, criticism, and of course Paul Constant!

New tool libraries just keep popping up! Another great project will soon open its doors just across the water from us on Vashon Island. Home of the original "no-trash-bash-stash," Vashon is a perfect spot for this shared community resource!
In an effort to bolster Vashon’s community self-sufficiency, a group of volunteers has created a tool-lending library where islanders can go to borrow tools for any project.

West Seattle Summerfest fun continues all day today with GreenLife demos on canning, going carless, preventing invasives, growing medicinal gardens & city herb, installing solar power, and, of course, a bit of dancing. A little something for every type of green living!

Some Americans admire Swedish culture for its focus on quality health care, education, and social well being. Why do we always forget chainsaw ice skating? We're so far behind.

Air your grievances (and show your love) at our annual Tool Library Festivus Fundraiser this Friday, Dec 5th, 5-9pm, over at the +SoDo MakerSpace.  Excellent chance to celebrate another record setting year and also ensure that the Tool Library has the resources for many more to come.

We'll be partying with our parent organization, Sustainable West Seattle, and all its various projects tonight 6-9pm up at the Community Orchard of West Seattle. Swing by if you get a chance, tour the garden, and take an electric bike for a spin!
We Need Your Help! Ever borrow a tool from your neighbor? Ever wish they had a better selection? Sustainable West Seattle has won a grant from the City of Seattle Department of Neighborhoods and has set up a tool lending library. You can find out more information or check out our inventory!

Tool Libraries & "Weird Al" Yankovic definitely go hand in hand.
 
Move over, "Fancy." "Weird Al" Yankovic's got a new song of the summer.
Today marks the official halfway point of “Weird Al” Yankovic’s #8videos8days project and so far, it’s been one heck of a ride. From “Tacky” (which you can see the behind the scenes…

We love the creative energy of the The +Seattle Public Library!  Yesterday they hosted a Teen Maker Space at the Southwest Branch & The Super Duper Construction Challenge at the Columbia Branch. Today there's Lego Mania at the Delridge Branch. What an awesome library system!   http://bit.ly/1nyZ14p
