Repair Café@the Library

Do you like to fix and tinker with things (think bikes, furniture, toys, jewelry, small electrical appliances, gadgets, computers, textiles, lawnmowers…)? We are planning a Repair Café to be held in conjunction with our Makerspace at the Library and are looking for folks who are handy at repairing things. Volunteer repairers will help people fix broken things rather than throwing them away. Please let us know if you are interested; also pass this along to anyone you think might be. Once we have a list of interested volunteers, we will set up a time to get together and begin working out the details. In addition to repairers, we also need volunteers to help with planning the event and on the day of the event to ensure it runs smoothly. Contact: 231-758-3114; Email
