The Niagara-on-the-Lake Public Library is planning to bring back its popular Repair Cafe this summer and is looking for handy volunteers who can help.

The program offers people a chance to bring in their small electronics to be repaired at no cost in the library's Makerspace.

“We are looking for volunteers who are tech-savvy and mechanically savvy, to be able to help rewire or repair items that people in the community may not know how to fix,” said Aedan Johnston, the library's Makerspace facilitator.

People who are skilled in sewing, soldering, wiring or metalwork would be ideal volunteers, he said.

Johnston said in general, the items people usually bring in are lamps, small electronics and appliances, jewelry, ripped fabrics or unseated zippers.
