Host a Repair Café in Your Library

eLearning
Webinar
Your library can host a Repair Café or other community repair event to foster a culture of repair, reuse and resourcefulness.

Learn how your library can host a Repair Café (or fixit-clinic, fixit-fair, or other community repair event). Public libraries and Repair Cafés are natural allies and together can foster a culture of repair, reuse, and resourcefulness while strengthening community.

In this webinar you'll learn what a Repair Café is and how to start one, including recruiting volunteers, ensuring you have necessary supplies, and promoting and managing your event. The presenters will also share insights, strategies, and best practices for establishing and nurturing a Repair Café in your library, using our own events to demonstrate what to do (and what not to do!).
