Carlsbad Dove Library

Fix-It Clincic

We've become too accustomed to the throw-away lifestyle. If something breaks, we toss it out and buy a new one. This behavior is filling our landfills at an alarming rate, and electronic waste is now one of the biggest sources of pollution. So why not learn how to fix things instead?!

About the event

Please Read First.

We've become too accustomed to the throw-away lifestyle. If something breaks, we toss it out and buy a new one. This behavior is filling our landfills at an alarming rate, and electronic waste is now one of the biggest sources of pollution. So why not learn how to fix things instead?!

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 works.

And that is not all. During this October 21st event, we will host several booths and workshops on reuse, repair, and recycling with a Halloween Theme.

  • SD Fixit Clinic – Bring ONE ITEM to repair
  • Halloween costume repair and Swap hosted by I Love A Clean San Diego
  • Craft DIY Halloween headbands and masks using sustainable materials
  • Recycling stations: Batteries and light bulbs
  • Clothing and Shoe donation drive for Catholic Charities La Posada
  • Bicycle Repair and Maintenance

This event is fun for the whole family, so bring your kids! We are expanding rapidly and will host events all over San Diego County.

We hope to see you there!

Some FAQs:

Does this cost money?

This event is free to attend, but it is not a drop-off and fix event. Instead, it is a hands-on event where participants can learn how to repair their items with the help of our expert coaches.

What if my item needs a replacement part?

As this is a free event, we do not provide replacement parts. You will be responsible for any costs incurred if your item requires additional or replacement parts. We may have some spare parts on hand, but it is the attendee's responsibility to purchase and bring the necessary parts on the day of the event.

In other words, this is a free event, so you are responsible for your equipment and any repairs that may be needed. We may have spare parts, but you must bring them if required.

Will you accept walk-ins?

We will accept walk-ins if there is time, but it depends on how quickly we can repair the items of the registered attendees.
