    • 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. Clothing Swap: Update your wardrobe before the summer season and help divert textile waste from our local landfills!

    • 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. SD Fixit Clinic (Registration strongly encouraged): Bring your broken, non-working items—electronics, appliances, computers, toys, bicycles, clothes, and more—for assessment, disassembly, and possible repair. We’ll provide workspace, specialty tools, and guidance to help you take apart and troubleshoot your item. Even if we can’t fix it, you’ll learn more about how it was made and how it works. Learn more and sign-up to bring an item here!
    • 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. Seed Bombs Workshop and Seed Library hosted by The Valley Center Library

A few things to keep in mind:

    • You can attend any or all of these activities – separate or together, whatever you have time and interest for! The cleanup will kick-off at 9 a.m. outside the library, and the Swap Party, Fix-It-Clinic, and resource booths will be kicking off around 10 a.m. inside the library.
    • We ask that you register for the Cleanup and for the SD Fixit Clinic, so we can be prepared with supplies, tools, and volunteer experts to help with breaking down broken appliances. You can register for each event by following the links above, or clicking “Register” below. No registration needed for any of the other activities – but we encourage you to bring some lightly used items for the Swap Party!
