TED Talks

The Library is proud to announce the return of the TED Talks program. TED Talks are brief thought-provoking and relevant talks by experts that are designed to educate and inspire. This is an adult drop-in program.

Our topic for the day is:

You deserve the right to repair your stuff by Gay Gordon-Byrne.

A self-declared “repair geek,” Gay Gordon-Byrne is a driving force behind the right-to-repair movement, which aims to empower people to fix their stuff. She describes how the movement is gaining legislative momentum and breaks down how the global shift away from “throwaway society” can literally turn trash into treasure in a circular economy — so we can all experience that “Yes! I fixed it!” feeling.
