Fixit Clinic

Fixit Clinics are fun community-based workshops where neighbors, friends, and families work collectively to learn how to repair broken items. We’ll provide a workspace, specialty tools, and volunteer Fixit Coaches to help you troubleshoot and provide routine maintenance to your household items and appliances!

Millbrae – CANCELLED

Out of an abundance of caution and in conjunction with guidance from San Mateo County’s Health Officer in regard to public events and concerns around COVID-19, the Office of Sustainability is cancelling this event until further notice.

Date: Saturday, March 21, 2020
Time: 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Venue: Millbrae Public Library, 1 Library Ave, Millbrae

This event hosted in partnership with the Millbrae Public Library and the City of Millbrae. Contact Shova Ale Magar at for more detail.



Fixit Coaches provide participants with:

  • guidance on tools
  • encouragement to investigate their broken item.

Tips for Fixit Coaches:

  • Let them talk about how they used it and how it broke. That often provides valuable hints as to what’s wrong.
  • See how much you can do without actually handling the item. Empower the item’s owner to do the troubleshooting and disassembly.
  • Register to be a coach here.
