Reduce Waste, Build Community: Hosting Repair Events at Your Library

Libraries around the world are hosting repair events, inviting people to bring damaged household items and clothing to be repaired instead of throwing them away. Repair events can help your library reach diverse communities, teach and maintain valuable repair skills, and engage with skilled volunteers and invested community partners. Help your patrons save money on electronic, mechanical or sewing repairs and divert waste from the landfill with fix-it fairs, repair cafes and U-fix-it clinics. Join us for this webinar to learn everything you need to know about hosting a repair event, from finding partners to recruiting fixers, and from getting management approval to effectively getting the word out.

Presented by:

  • Tom Watson, Project Manager, King County EcoConsumer Public Outreach Program, King County Solid Waste Division, Seattle
  • Laurie Finlayson, Adult Services Librarian for Auburn, Algona-Pacific and Muckleshoot Libraries, King County Library System
  • Steven Bailey, Librarian Services Manager, Auburn, Algona-Pacific, and Muckleshoot Libraries, King County Library System
