Repair Fairs: Volunteers Needed!

The Pikes Peak Library District is currently seeking volunteers to staff a new program initiative: Repair Fairs! Volunteer “Fixers” are needed to help with a new community-wide fix-it program, where people can bring in broken items to the library and receive help learning how to troubleshoot and fix the item rather than throwing it away.

Can you…

  • Repair tires, chains, or brakes for bikes?
  • Mend, hem, or patch clothing or other fabric items?
  • Test, dismantle, or fix small appliances, vacuum cleaners, lamps, etc.?
  • Assess, disassemble, or possibly repair electronics and computers?
  • Repair broken jewelry?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, help your local community by becoming a Fixer!

To apply, print this application form as well as this skill specialty questionnaire and drop them off at East Library Att: Amber Cox, or email both to acox@ppld.org. Submissions are due by March 31.

Please contact Amber Cox at (719) 531-6333 x1305 or acox@ppld.org with questions.

Location(s): TBD
Hours: Will vary by location

Is this an ongoing event/one big event/one on one/group instruction....where could I find the detail about this?

Hi there. We are planning for this to become a regular thing (possibly quarterly). It will be large events at various libraries’ meeting rooms at which fixers will be available to help instruct/repair items that fit within their specialties.
