New Milford Public Library is looking for volunteers to help mend, repair, or restore items brought in by people in the community at an upcoming Repair Café.

Mechanics, seamstresses, electricians, IT and tech experts are welcome.

Repair Cafés are beginning to pop up worldwide, and encourage salvaging items instead of simply purchasing another.

Normally held at a fixed location, Repair Cafés bring volunteers and community members together to repair household electrical and mechanical devices, computers, bicycles, clothing, etc.

Interested volunteers should contact Val Fisher at or 860-355-1191, ext. 203, or Rachael Schuster at or 860-355-1191, ext. 206.
