The Vermillion Public Library is excited to introduce a new program called Repair Cafe! You can read more about the Repair Cafe movement here:
This first session will focus on clothing/textile and bicycle repairs. We will have volunteers (with tools!) on hand who are willing to assist you with minor repairs of various sorts. In order to serve you best, it would be helpful to sign up for an appointment ahead-of-time with a description of repair needed. However, drop-ins will also be accommodated, so don’t hesitate to join us if you can!
It’s Edie’s Birthday!! Come and help us celebrate at the next sale of the Friends of the Vermillion Public Library, in Edie’s Book Shop.
