Transition Marquette County Repair Cafe

Event Dates and Times

3/17/2018 - Starts: 12:00 PM - Ends: 4:00 PM
The Transition Marquette County Repair Cafe will be open Saturday, March 17, from noon to 4pm in the Marquette Arts and Culture Center in the lower level of Peter White Public Library. The public is invited to bring small and medium sized items in need of repair or adjustment, such as toasters, sewing machines, clothing, lamps, electronics, and other households items. (Please no gas motors!) “Repair talent” with their tools will be available to help fix and demonstrate how the different items work. There is no charge for this service, though a $5 donation to help with expenses is encouraged.

Repair Cafés are free meeting places and they’re all about repairing things together. The first Repair Cafe opened in the Netherlands eight years ago. In addition to Marquette, Michigan Repair Cafe’s are also in Petoskey and Whitehall. Of the 1450 locations in the world, 67 are in the United States. Their purpose is to teach people how to repair their own things so they can save money and resources while diverting items out of the waste stream destined for dumps. The public with items to be repaired, or just their curiosity, are invited to stop in.
