Event Details

What do you do with a broken toaster? Or with a bike when the wheel runs out of true? Or with a shirt that is ripped? Toss it? No way! Schuylerville Public Library is organizing its first Repair Café on Saturday, July 20 from 11am until 2pm. 

Various volunteer repair experts will be available to help make all possible repairs free of charge. People are expected to remain with their items and help in the repairs, learning as we go.  Most tools and materials will also be on hand. If you know of a specialty part needed, please bring it along. People visiting the Repair Café will bring along their broken items from home. Toasters, lamps, hair dryers, computers, radios, clothes, bikes, toys... anything that is broken and small enough to carry is welcome (please do not bring anything leaking oil or creating a mess or odor) and can more than likely be repaired. The Repair Café specialists almost always have the know-how.

Interested in volunteering for this event, either as a greeter or repairer?  Simply contact Caitlin Johnson at cjohnson@sals.edu.  Schuylerville Public Library wishes to organize a Repair Café on a regular basis. News about dates of up-and-coming editions will follow as soon as possible!  Visit Repaircafe.org for more info.
