Mike Stephen visits the future home of the Community Glue Workshop in Edgewater, learns about Read/Write Library’s quest for a new BiblioTreka, and previews the Makers Day event at the Blue Buddha Boutique.

 

Ally Brisbin and Carla Bruni– Co-founders of the Community Glue Workshop

Inspired by the “repair cafe” movement in Amsterdam, the Community Glue Workshop offers opportunities for you to have your weathered or broken belongings rehabilitated by their neighbors at no cost.  We pay them a visit.


 

Nell Taylor Executive Director of the Read/Write Library

The Read/Write Library is a new model for open, location-specific archiving of independent and small press media.  They are raising money for a new BiblioTreka popup library bicycle.  You can donate to their quest here.
