Repair Cafe
10:00am / Durango Tool Library
Don't despair, repair! Bring your wobbly chairs, torn shirts, shattered phone screens, malfunctioning bicycles, and toasters on-the-blink to the Repair Cafe. A crew of volunteers will be on-hand to help you diagnose and fix your things.   By connecting people who know how to repair with people who have things that need repair, we can ensure more things are fixed and used, instead of discarded and replaced.   Volunteers will help you troubleshoot your broken thing, and provide a prescription for how it can be repaired. When possible, volunteers will help you make on-site, real-time repairs—and send you home with a fixed thing. For other repairs, like those that require specialized replacement parts, the prescription will guide you through what's needed to repair the item.   @Kiddos and doggos: Bring your sick and wounded stuffed animals to the Stuffed Animal Hospital. Volunteers will be ready to give your stuffed animal special care, like replacing missing stuffing and patching any holes, so you can keep playing with your stuffie.   There is no fee for participating in this event, but there will be local coffee cart and drink vendors onsite offering yummy beverages for purchase. Get a drink for you and, perhaps, for a volunteer? It is a repair "café" after all! Come enjoy a refreshment while repairing and learning.   To attend and get your things fixed: No sign up required. No fees to participate. Come and bring one thing to be repaired.   To volunteer and help fix things: Volunteers are needed to staff repair stations. If you are interested in helping, please check out details and sign up here.
