Repair Cafe to be open Saturday

MARQUETTE — The Transition Marquette County Repair Cafe will be open again on Saturday in the Marquette Arts and Culture Center, on the lower level of the Peter White Public Library in Marquette.

From noon to 4 p.m. on that day, the public is invited to bring in small household items in need of repair. Volunteer repair talent will be on hand to work on computers and electronics, sewing machines, small appliances, clothing, lamps, and other household items.

The focus is on helping people learn to repair their own items, thus saving money and keeping material out of landfills. There is no charge for this service; a $5 donation is suggested to support the program.

Future events are scheduled for April 20 and May 25.
