Community members are invited to bring their broken objects and a can-do spirit to the Moscow Public Library’s Repair Café on Sunday, June 27 from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. at the 1912 Center, located at 412 East Third Street.
Volunteer experts will share their skills with visitors to repair books, clothing and textiles, jewelry, small household appliances, toys, and other items. In addition, there will be a station for knife and scissor sharpening, with a two item limit. There will also be a gluing station with a variety of glues. Light refreshments will be provided. There is no guarantee that items will be fully repaired. Attendees bring items at their own risk.
The Repair Café movement started in the Netherlands in 2009 with the goals of reducing waste, teaching participants practical repair skills, and fostering a new appreciation for old possessions.
Funding for this program is provided by the Friends of the Moscow Library. This program is free and open to the public.
