Fixit Clinic

Fixit Clinic In-Person

Everyone is welcome to come to the Fixit Clinic in the Howard Room of the library on Saturday June 8 at 3:00PM.  Building resilient communities by conveying critical thinking and troubleshooting skills through repair, Fixit Clinics are do-it-together hands-on fix-n-learn community-based exploration and discovery workshops staffed by volunteer Fixit Coaches who generously share their time, tools and expertise to consult with you on the disassembly, troubleshooting, and repair of items.

So bring your broken, non-functioning things -- electronic gadgets, appliances, computers, toys, sewing machines, bicycles, etc.-- for assessment, disassembly, and possible repair. Examples of items worked on in the past: lamps, cd players, blenders, toys, and a suitcase. 

Fixit Coaches (and helpful neighbors) will be available for consultation on broken items: we'll provide workspace, specialty tools, and guidance to help you disassemble and troubleshoot your item. Whether you fix it or not, you'll learn more about how it was manufactured and how it worked, ready to share your new-found skills and insight with friends, neighbors, and the community at large. (Hopefully you’ll be inspired to become a Fixit Coach yourself.)

This program is free and open to all, but registration is required. You can register using this link - https://bit.ly/itemcheckin - and sign up for specific clinic dates, and share more about the item you want to work on.  For more information, contact Kayleigh at Kayleigh.thomas@bhpl.net.
