Don’t miss the Fix-It Fair at the Columbia Public Library. Stuff breaks. But that doesn’t always mean you have to throw it away. If you have a smallish broken thing that you love or need to keep using, don’t throw it away! Learn how to fix it. A variety of handy volunteers will join us to share their knowledge of how to repair or mend small appliances, electronics, toys, textiles and more. Please only bring items that you can easily carry into the library. (No large appliances, microwaves or CRT monitors). Registration begins Wednesday, Jan. 2.
