Program Description

Event Details

If you've ever wondered what's inside old electronics, now's your chance to find out! Each participant will have the chance to open up a used piece of tech and see what's inside! Use the parts to make a piece of art that you can take home with you and proudly display.

*This workshop involves de-construction, not destruction. Participants will be expected to carefully disassemble their tech with minimal breakage.

*Registration guarantees one seat. Each participant must register separately to guarantee that we have enough pieces of tech for everyone to take apart.


Central Parking

Free library parking is available in Central's underground parking garage for two hours per visit. Parking around the library is metered at various costs from 9 a.m. - 9 p.m. Monday-Saturday.
