Thanks to the Fixit folks for their nice post about our fixit clinic http://fixitclinic.blogspot.com/2016/09/fixit-clinic-clxxviii-178-newark-library.html
Filed under: Uncategorized
Saturday, September 10, 1 – 4 p.m.
Bring your broken small stuff (appliances, electronics, clothing and other textiles, etc.) and work with fixit coaches to take them apart and see whether they can be repaired. This is a wonderful chance for the whole family to learn the ins and outs of stuff. If the first event is successful, there will be fixit clinics at the same time on October 8 and November 5.

June is Pride month and GLBT book month, and while we who work and come to the library regularly know that libraries are safe, welcoming places, not everyone who should know does know. So the staff at Newark Library wanted to take some photos to make it clear that you, whoever you are and wherever you are, you belong at your library.
And then Orlando happened.
Suddenly, letting people in the LGBTQIA community – and the Latinx community – know that we welcome all into our safe spaces became even more important.
And, as has been shared so much this past week – but cannot be said enough:
We stand with you; we are proud of you. You are brave; you are loved.
