Description:

Do you have piles of old technology lying around and taking up space?  Are you sick of having to pay for removal and recycling of computers and monitors?  Do you have a cellphone graveyard somewhere in your home or library?  If you've answered YES to any of these, we'?re here to help!  From new library signage to game servers, translation assistance to emergency phone services, old and "obsolete" technology can be used in many ways to make your lives and your patrons' lives easier.

Join us for an idea-session on how you can use some of your old technology to brighten your libraries, bring new resources to patrons, improve accessibility and communication, or simply make your circulation or reference desk a more fun place to be!  Some DIY skills are recommended, but we'll also be covering resources and how-tos to bolster your own skills and abilities.
