Little Rock, Ark. – A new program allows patrons to have anything broken at Little Rock’s De Browne Library repaired.
The Central Arkansas Library System announced Wednesday that it has begun monthly meetings of Repair Cafe, an organization for people to gather and make repairs. The next CALS Repair Cafe is March 19th from 2 to 4 pm.
A library spokesperson said that examples of repairable items are toasters, lamps, hair dryers, clothes, bikes and toys, although anything broken is welcome.
The De Browne library also has a tool library to checkout to aid in repair. Experts will also be on hand to help the volunteers with guidance and advice at no charge.
The Repair Cafe organization started in 2009 in Amsterdam. The volunteer organization is there to give new life to broken things and keep them out of landfills.
Any expert interested in volunteering is encouraged to email Rachel at tool [email protected] or call 501-568-7494 for more information.
