What do you do with a broken toaster? Or that pair of pants with a hole? Toss it? No way! Smithers Public Library is hosting a Repair Café where volunteer fix-it experts and tools will be available to help make repairs so you can keep those items in use and out of the landfill.
This program is sponsored by the Regional District of Bulkley Nechako and Wetzin’kwa Community Forest Corporation.
In April 2019, Pacific Northern Gas (PNG) joined the growing list of generous donors who have stepped up to support the Smithers Library-Gallery Project with a generous donation of $5000. The project has received more than half of the $1 million in community contributions it targeted this past year. The fundraising committee thanks the many generous donors who stepped up in this first phase (for details, read the Feb 28, 2019 press release).
Wally Bergen, Fundraising Committee Co-chair, stated on behalf of the Committee that the community has shown tremendous initial support: “We can be proud and continue to move forward with the successful completion of this invaluable project.”
In the coming months, there will be an opportunity for the wider community to make donations to this project and help build a lasting legacy for Bulkley Valley residents to enjoy for generations to come.
