Fix-It Clinic Comes to Brookdale Library on February 9
Jan 31, 2013 11:00AM
The Hennepin County Fix-It Clinic will be held at the Brookdale Library, in Brooklyn Center, from noon to 3 p.m. on February 9.
At Fix-It Clinics, which are growing in popularity worldwide, residents bring in such items as small household appliances, clothing, electronics and mobile devices in need of fixing. They receive free guided assistance from a volunteer with repair skills to disassemble, troubleshoot and fix their items. Fix-It Clinics reduce the amount of material that gets thrown in the trash, teach valuable troubleshooting and basic repair skills and build community connections.
Volunteer fixers are needed. Volunteers should have skills in soldering, electronics and electrical repair, computer repair, sewing and general tinkering, and have a strong desire to teach and empower people.
Visitors are helped on a first-come-first-served basis, and they also should bring any tools and supplies that might be helpful.
Cost: Free. Location: 6125 Shingle Creek Pkwy., Brooklyn Center. For more information, visit Hennepin.us/FixItClinic.
