It’s not junk — it’s a learning tool!
The Homewood Public Library is asking residents to donate used items with moveable parts for its second Tech Take Apart event on Thursday, April 26. The program allows kids ages 5 through 15 to experience first hand how simple machines work.
The library staff is looking for a specific variety of items for this event, including old toys with moving or electronic parts, radios, typewriters, VHS/DVD players, landline telephones and clocks. Computer laptops and monitors are not being accepted, but computer CPU towers are.
While staff appreciates all the donations, this year “we are being cautious in what we accept because we don’t want anything that could injure anyone,” said Tori Alt, the new technologies librarian.
Donations can be dropped off between April 16 and 20 at the library, 17917 Dixie Highway. This year’s Tech Take Apart is sponsored by Homewood Disposal and The Computer Doctor.
