More than likely just needs to have the fluid changed and any air bled out of it. It's not a tough job to do.

I'll be riding to your town tomorrow for a little bit!

Pump it up and crack open the hose bolt at the master cylinder to bleed the air out. Then bleed out all the old fluid at the bottom. After this is done and th clutch still doesn't release, you may have to get it out on the road and snap the throttle a few times wilst in 1st or 2nd gear with the clutch lever held in. Some times the plates will stick together over time and it takes a good jolt or two to break it loose. Just try to have an area fairly clear of cars, kids, canines, cats and other critters.
