Program Description


Join Santa Barbara Public Library for a Fix-It Fair focused on bike repair and clothing repair! 

Bring your bike and clothing and our volunteers will assist in mending, fixing, and repairing your items at no cost. Upcycle your clothes with fun stamps! Bring an empty container and learn about refillable products from Sunkissed Pantry and the IV Food Co-op!

Repairs happen on a first come, first served basis. Issues on bicycles related to safety must be taken care of prior to other issues. 

Participation in the Fix-It Fair is free and volunteers will assist attendees on a first-come, first-serve basis. 

For those bringing multiple items to repair, please be advised that if others are waiting, we will repair one item and ask that you wait in line again for additional repairs so that we can serve as many people as possible in the short time we have.

Items requiring additional parts and tools may be referred out to other local organizations/businesses.

Repairs cannot be guaranteed but volunteers will do their best!

Thanks to our bike repair volunteers BiciCentro, AS Bikes, Velo Pro
