Pack up your dull garden shears, wobbly chair, holey jeans and non-working RC car and bring to South King Tool Library’s Repair Café on Wednesday, July 25, from 3 to 6 p.m., at the Thornton F. McElroy Masonic Lodge, 1700 S. 340th St, Federal Way.

The free fix-it event is open to the public.

Residents of South King County and North Pierce County can bring any broken, damaged or non-functioning small household items including kitchen appliances, furniture, clothing and family heirlooms. Please only bring items small enough to be easily carried in by one person. Do not bring any items that are leaking, dangerous, contain gasoline, or have a strong odor. We are not able to repair cracked electronic screens, locked out electronics or microwaves at this event.

Residents are encouraged to sign up describing broken items so fixers may research in advance. Items should be accompanied by any manuals, adapters, chargers and/or any parts required to check if working. There are no guarantees that items are able to be fixed. Walk-ins are welcome and everyone will be assisted as time is available.

This event is brought to you by the South King Tool Library which is expected to open this fall. This non-profit community organization will allow borrowers to check out tools and equipment to care for their homes, yards, gardens and more. Learn more at

To sign up or if you have questions about the event, please visit or contact Larry Todd, executive director, at 253-259-8562 or
