Meadowbrook Community Council

Supporting community spirit and creating a connected environment in NE Seattle's Meadowbrook community and surrounding neighborhoods.

NE Seattle Tool Library moves to Meadowbrook!

After a year long search for a new location, the NE Seattle Tool Library signed a lease on a new place — the historic “LaVilla Dairy” building that had housed the Shutter Shop. It is just off Lake City Way in the Meadowbrook neighborhood. Loan operations should move around March.

Address: 10228 Fischer Pl NE

A major challenge is the monthly rent. The current cash flow is not sufficient to cover it, although long term growth should take care of it.
You can help by renewing your membership, starting a membership if not a member, and/or making a one time donation.

For a sneak preview inside, visit during the open house, Saturday January 27th from 2 – 4pm.

We will have a need for volunteer labor and shelving materials. Contact Chris or Mike at the Tool Library. Website:
