Planet People Project is the library's proactive program series about building resilient communities and ecosystems.
August 2019's theme is REUSE AND REPAIR
August 31, 2019: 2-5pm
Bring in your bikes, electronic devices to be repaired, your clothes to be mended, and small appliances to be fixed! Let's keep stuff out of the landfill and build community by helping each other fix things.
- Drop in. First come, first served.
- No guarantee that we can fix your item
- Help the event run smoothly by filling out a Repair Party Request Form at tiny.cc/repairparty or call (707) 546-2265 and ask for Jenny.
- We're recruiting volunteers for this event (sign up to be a fixer, greeter, translator, and "supply runner"). Fill out the form at tiny.cc/repairvolunteer or call the library and ask for Jenny.
