In the spirit of reducing waste and teaching new skills to the community, the Blue Hill Public Library hosts a monthly "Fixit Clinic" on the first Saturday of the month, with the next one scheduled for Saturday, February 2nd from 2:30 to 4:00 PM. Local experts will coach people in the community to disassemble and troubleshoot a variety of items, such as appliances, bicycles, jewelry, clothing, toys, electronics and, well, whatever.Click here for directions
At last month's Fixit Clinic, coaches helped attendees to troubleshoot a blender, solder a wire in a set of Bluetooth headphones, get a fish tank pump back up and running, access the burned out light bulb in a fiber optic Christmas tree, and more! Attendees and coaches alike ranged in age from kids to seniors and everyone learned a lot.
Participants are expected to actively participate in the disassembly, troubleshooting, and repair of their items so that they can leave fully empowered to share new-found skills and insights with friends, neighbors, and the community at large. Repair is not assured: while coaches will do their best to help, any specific item can have issues that make it unrepairable or efforts can exacerbate the problem during attempts to repair it.
Participants are asked to register via Check-in Form below so that the library can try to have the right experts on hand. The clinic is on a drop in basis—so participants can arrive anytime between 2:30 and 4:00 PM. Anyone interested in participating as a coach may contact the library at 374-5515 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
