Don?t throw it out, fix it!

Submitted By Barbara Telford-Ishida

Tri-City residents who have broken appliances, electronic gadgets, sewing machines, textiles, bikes or other items they would like to try and fix should mark Saturday, May 19 on their calendars. That?s the day the Newark Library is hosting a free Fixit Clinic from 1 to 4 p.m.

Co-sponsored by Republic Services, the event will include volunteer coaches that will help people take apart their broken goods, explore what?s inside and attempt to repair them. The library will provide the workspace, tools, and coaches. The event is free and open to people of all ages.

There are also spots still open for volunteer coaches. The only requirements are curiosity and a willingness to encourage and help others open their broken items and try to fix them. Interested volunteers should sign up online by visiting
