This is pretty neat: the Mt. Pleasant Library has a new weekly event called Make/Fix Anything where you can come with questions or problems and they'll help you figure out how to make or fix anything (anything legal, that is.)
The weekly event is kind of a drop-in clinic for making things, for all ages, and sounds like a lot of fun as well as being useful.
It's every Sunday until March 20th from 1:30-4:30 pm. Here's more:
Make/Fix Anything Project! Library kickoff Sunday
You (Yes, YOU!) can make or fix nearly anything. Its true! Ultimately these abilities result from a superpower that lies within each of us: the ability to self instruct. Matt McEntee wants to learn and help others learn. This is why he has made a practice of helping anyone make or fix nearly anything.*
Since its inception in 2013, the practice has functioned broadly, spanning broken bicycles to broken hearts. McEntee has helped people in public parks, coffee shops, art shows, and online. The Make/Fix Anything Project will help you make or fix nearly anything... for free!
The Make/Fix Anything Project takes place in Conference Room 1 on Sundays through 3/20/2016. Come by Mt. Pleasant Library between 1:30-4:30 p.m. and try your hand at making and fixing.
* - McEntee reserves the right to refuse assistance for projects deemed unethical. For instance he may help you make a rocket ship but probably not a machine gun.
