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.

We are especially looking for people who enjoy sharing their knowledge with their neighbors and are handy with the following. Please join us and visit this link to sign up!:
