Repair Cafe In-Person

 If an effort to reduce waste and to learn new skills the Curtis Memorial library in collaboration with the Patten Free Library is offering a Repair Cafe! If you haven’t heard of a repair café before it’s a global movement that started in Europe but has grown into a global organization with the goal of reducing waste as well as educating people on how to repair the items that break everyday rather then throw them away. It's a great way of connecting members of the community that are familiar with repairs and those that aren't but are excited to learn! On Saturday September 24th from 10 A.M. to 12:30 P.M. the library will host a group of volunteers who will work with patrons to repair their items, this is an excellent opportunity to learn how to repair common items rather than have to replace them. 

We will have experts able to repair electronics, lamps, mend clothing, small appliances, sharpen tools, wooden furniture and Jewelry. If we are unable to repair your item we will make suggestions on where you can find the parts and learn how to do the repair or have it professionally repaired. Please bring your items to the library, through the outside doors to the Morrell Meeting room along middle street. This is a first come, first served program and depending on the turnout we can't guarantee we will be able to help everyone or repair every item.

Our goal is to help our community learn how simple many repairs can be and that there are local experts within our community willing to help. If you have any questions or if there is something you would like repaired but don't know if we can help at the repair cafe please call the library at 725-5242 ext 4.
