Fixit Clinic

calendar icon December 4, 2021 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Everyone is welcome to come to the Fixit Clinic in the Howard Room of the library on the first Saturday of the month at 3:30PM.  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, fabric and textile items, etc.– for assessment, disassembly, and possible repair. 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.
