Repair Cafe: Downtown Vancouver Library
Repair Cafés are free community events where skilled 'fixers' volunteer to lend their skills to residents who bring in their broken items for repair. The goal of the events is to keep stuff out of the landfill, conserve resources, save money and share skills throughout the community.
Join us on Thursday, June 7th, from 5:30-7:30pm at the downtown Vancouver Community Library (901 C Street / Vancouver, WA 98660) for our next Repair Café! Bring your clothing, small home appliances, electronics, jewelry, or tools/knives that need sharpening, and fixers will try to repair them or help you fix them! Attendees may bring one item each and must be present during the repair. If multiple items are brought, the attendee will need to re-enter the line for their additional item after one repair is completed. Attendees are encouraged to bring replacement parts (i.e. cords, zippers) specific to their broken item for fixers to use in the repair.
Experienced fixers will try to repair or mend your items and can sometimes teach you how to fix them. Please only bring items small enough to be easily carried by one person, and do not bring any items that are leaking, dangerous, dirty or have a strong odor. There are no guarantees an item can be fixed, or that attempting to fix it won’t break it even more, but fixers will be available to diagnose problems and offer their best, unbiased advice. Volunteers will provide free diagnosis and repair skills, and replacement parts may be available for sale at a low cost.Visit RepairClarkCounty.org for more information
