Fixit Clinic

In the spirit of reducing waste and teaching the community new skills, the Blue Hill Public Library hosts a first-Saturday-of-the-month “Fixit Clinic” from September-June. Local experts coach people in the community to disassemble and troubleshoot a variety of items, such as appliances, bicycles, jewelry, clothing, toys, electronics and, well, whatever.

Attendees are expected to actively participate in the disassembly, troubleshooting, and repair of their items so that they can leave fully empowered to share new-found skills and insights with friends, neighbors, and the community at large. Repair is not assured: while coaches will do their best to help, any specific item can have issues that make it unrepairable or efforts can exacerbate the problem during attempts to repair it.

Participants are asked to register via the web form at http://bit.ly/fixitcheckin so that the library can try to have the right experts on hand. The clinic works on a drop-in basis—so participants can arrive anytime between 2:00 and 3:30 PM. We are also interested in bringing in new coaches. If you are handy and would like to participate as a coach, please contact the library at 374-5515 or email hannah.cyrus@bhpl.net.
