Do you have anything that needs to be repaired?
Don’t toss it — take it to the library to be fixed.
A toaster or other small appliances, electronics, computers, even clothes, jewelry and books can be fixed at the Niagara-on-the-Lake Public Library’s Repair Cafe, this Saturday, Feb. 1, at 11 a.m.
Volunteers will be onhand not to just carry out repairs, but to show you how to fix it — for free.
This is the second Repair Cafe — the first one drew a great response from volunteers anxious to help, and organizer Matt Furlong, known as the tech guy at the library, is hoping there will be a good turnout of people with items to be repaired. He’ll be there to help with computers that need work.
A jewelry-maker who wants to help fix jewelry is expected, someone who is great with a needle and thread will be there to help with clothing repairs, and a gentleman who is handy with small appliances will try to get them working again.
The Repair Cafe will run from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., says Furlong.
