In your first year in Stardew Valley, you will be taken to the old Community Center. It used to be the heart of the town but over the years it has fallen into disrepair. Mayor Lewis tasks you with figuring out the "rat problem" and it soon becomes your job to fix the building. We're here to walk you through repairing the community center.

How to Repair the Community Center

1. Solve the Rat Mystery

You unlock the Community Center on the 5th day of Spring in your first year. When you head there with Mayor Lewis you will see something but he will not and he is sure that the place is filled with Rats. Once he leaves, head back into the community center and follow the path on your left. You should come across a room that looks like this:

Stardew Valley. The player is standing in the craft room in the community center before it has been repaired. The room has a purple floor and there is a glowing scroll in the middle of it.

Read the scroll in the center of this room and you will not be able to understand it. After you have done this you can return to your other activities. The next morning you should have a letter in your mailbox from Rasmodius the Wizard.

Go and find Rasmodius in his tower on the West side of Pelican Town. If you are having trouble finding it, the tower is marked on your map. When you have found his tower, head inside and talk to Rasmodius. After quite a long cutscene you will learn that the little "rats" are spirits that are called Junimos and Rasmodius will give you the ability to understand their scrolls.


2. Read the Scroll Again

Head back to the Community Center and back to the room with the scroll in it. Interact with the scroll to read it and you should be able to understand it now. There will be a tree with several different bundles/packages on it.

Your first job is to fill up one of these bundles. The easiest way to fill one quickly is to focus on the bundle for the season you are on. If you are close to the end of that season then focus on the one that's coming. When you have filled one of these bundles, click on the large gift at the base of the tree to claim your reward.

If you're enjoying Stardew Valley then you should take a look at the rest of our guides for it in our walkthrough hub.

3. Complete the Bundles for Each Scroll
