Crystal Palace Library of Things

Hosted by Crystal Palace Library of Things

Crystal Palace fixers will be returning to the Upper Norwood Library on Westow Hill for another repair party on Sunday July 8th!

Toaster being problematic? Mobile phone giving you grief? Blender driving you mad? Laptop playing up? Bring it along and we’ll help you fix it!

Free community repair event for electrical goods and clothing. A repair party is a place for people who like fixing or people who need something to be fixed. We work together to bring broken electrical devises and clothing back to life.

DISCLAIMER: we are happy to help you learn how to repair. We are not repair professionals and repair parties are a community self-service space. Attending means you are taking responsibility for your own gadget. Please back up your data. One item per person, no microwaves please.

For more details or to get involved search for ‘Crystal Palace Fixers’ on Facebook and RSVP on Meetup:

This event is being held in the first floor room of the Upper Norwood Joint Library, Westow Hill, SE19 1TJ.

Restart Party Do’s and Don’ts


  • Check if your device is still within warranty, you may be eligible for a free repair, replacement or a refund. (Which? helps in the UK).
  • Take responsibility for your device and your data. Our volunteers are there to help you learn to fix your gadget, not to provide a free repair service. Please back up your data before the event.
  • Charge up your device and bring all leads and adaptors.
  • Get in touch with organisers if you have any questions about whether a fix is possible.


  • Assume repairs will be successful. We help fix over half of devices at our events. Even if your repair is unsuccessful, you will learn about your device and why it failed.
  • Expect us to have spare parts. However we can help you source them. Often people visit twice: first we’ll help diagnose the fault, then you source the spare part, and on your return we’ll help you do a replacement.
  • Attempt a mobile screen repair just to save money. DIY mobile screen repair is a learning opportunity first and foremost. Please see our advice page first.
  • Bring a microwave.
