Reuse, recycle and repair before you replace — that’s the mission of the “repair café” coming to the Ottawa Tool Library in April.

“We want to extend the life of stuff, reducing waste but also bringing people together to share their skills and knowledge,” said volunteer Emily Brown, who is organizing the fix-it social next month.

The tool library, located in Makerspace North inside the City Centre plaza, launched in 2014. Members pay a monthly fee and are able to borrow a variety of tools and kitchen gadgets for short-term use, from table saws to pasta making machines.
