Join the Long Beach Repair Café 2017!

The Long Beach Repair Café is a neighborhood initiative that promotes repair as an alternative to tossing things out. The Long Beach Time Exchange in collaboration with the Michelle Obama Neighborhood Library are organizing the Long Beach Repair Café to take place on June 10th from 1-4pm.  Residents of Long Beach can bring their broken items to be fixed on the spot with the help of voluntary repairers. The Repair Café could use more handy volunteers in the area. Please join us! Visit this link to sign up!

Our Repair Café is looking for local residents with different skills who can be present as repair experts during the Repair Café event. We are especially looking for people who enjoy sharing their knowledge with their neighbors and are handy with:

* clothing / textile            * bicycles

* electrical appliances        * small furniture / wooden objects

* computers                * jewelry

* electronics                * other repair ideas?

* musical instruments

In addition, we are also looking for people who wish to participate and help with various tasks before, during and after the event. Please fill out this form to sign up!
