Community members are invited to bring their broken objects and a can-do spirit to the Moscow Public Library’s Repair Café! Volunteer experts will share their skills with visitors to repair books, clothing and textiles, furniture and upholstery, sock darning, small household appliances, toys, and other items. In addition, there will be a station for knife and scissor sharpening, with a two item limit. There will also be a gluing station with a variety of glues. There is no guarantee that items will be properly repaired. Attendees bring items at their own risk.
The Repair Café movement started in the Netherlands in 2009 with the goals of reducing waste, teaching participants practical repair skills, and fostering a new appreciation for old possessions.
