The city is hosting a free fix-it clinic at the Albany Community Center from 1-4 p.m.
"Bring your broken, non-functioning things (electronics, appliances, computers, toys, etc.)," says a notice on the city website. "We'll provide workspace, specialty tools and guidance to help you disassemble and troubleshoot your item. Whether we fix it or not, you'll learn more about how it was manufactured and how it worked. This is a family-friendly event children are heartily invited!"
The city also provided this list of what to bring:
- your broken or non-working thing (carry-in only: no oversize items)
- accessories and tools you already own that might be helpful (e.g. phillips head screwdriver)
- a camera to document the disassembly and what we find inside
- boxes, bags and/or small containers to organize (and carry away) parts.
