Fixit Coaches needed for Fremont Library’s New Maker Space

Fremont’s first monthly Fixit Clinic residency starts Tuesday, November 19 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Fremont Main Library’s new Archimedes Maker Space, 2400 Stevenson Blvd.

Fixit Coaches are needed to ensure the program’s success. First-time Fixit Coaches and fixing families are always welcome! No big time commitment.

Sign up, and select “2019-11-19 Fremont Main Library Fixit Clinic Residency.”

Being a Fixit Coach is easy. Simply provide participants with encouragement to investigate their broken item and guidance with tools. Be a listener more than a repairer; let participants talk about how they used the item and how it broke—that often provides valuable hints as to what's wrong. See how much you can do without actually handling the item. Empower the item's owner to do the troubleshooting and disassembly. Move among items and consult with others to cross-train and maximize transfer of knowledge for everybody—including you!

Event founder Peter Mui and the volunteer Fixit Clinic coaches generously donate their time and tools to the program, and more volunteers are always needed.

Information on upcoming Bay Area Fixit Clinics is posted on their Facebook page.

The Fixit Clinic series is sponsored by the Alameda County Library System, StopWaste, and the City of Fremont.
