We wanted to let our residents know about a cool event coming up at the Burlingame Library (480 Primrose Avenue, Burlingame).

The Repair Café brings together fix-it volunteers with folks who have items in need of repair. Youths can be paired with a “fixer” to learn new skills. The event offers a chance to keep things out of the landfill as well as think sustainably. While waiting for your turn, you can enjoy free refreshments and chat with others.

Volunteers skilled at fixing small appliances, jewelry, printers, clothing, lamps and other things will repair up to three items per person during the event. In addition, broken and outdated electronic items may be recycled at no charge in large e-waste bins available near the outside entrance to the Lane Room on Bellevue Avenue. At 1 p.m. Beeline Bikes will teach a free bike maintenance clinic on the front porch of the library, adjacent to the library’s new bike repair station. The clinic will include a flat tire repair, but Beeline will not evaluate individual bikes.
