Keep your broken items out of the landfill with the Kingston Frontenac Public Library (KFPL) and Repair Café Kingston. The Repair It! program returns to the Central Branch on Saturday, Sept. 24, 2022.
According to the library, Repair It! is a program that brings the community together to empower people so that they can fix broken household items. Rather than filling up the landfill, Repair It! connects people with “fixers” who can teach them how to give their broken lamps and other fixable objects a second life, KFPL said in a previous release about the program.
The public is welcome to drop in from 2 to 4 p.m. with items that need repair (nothing that uses petroleum, please). KFPL said that they cannot store any items on site — all items must be taken home with the owner at the end of the program session.
“The Repair It! community continues to grow with each program session,” said Kristen Lemay, Acting Manager, Programming and Outreach. “It is encouraging to see so many people in the community taking the initiative to give their items a second life. We look forward to seeing new and familiar faces this fall.”
Interested in learning new skills and chatting with fixers? Everyone is welcome to drop in, even if they don’t have anything to be fixed.
