Books and Beyond: “Take Apart” Technology at the Central Library

Saturday, November 9, 2019

Children ages 6 through 12 can discover what makes certain technology work at the Garland Library’s Books and Beyond program.

Attendees at the November event will take apart obsolete or nonfunctioning pieces of technology, such as old computers, keyboards, and phones, and analyze the parts they find inside. A functioning laptop will be made available for participants to look up the functions of the items they discover.

2 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 9
Central Library

Books and Beyond consists of book discussions and activities related to monthly themes. Each theme incorporates concepts from STEAM learning: science, technology, engineering, art, and math. Children use their imaginations to explore the themes and complete the activities, all while socializing with others their age and having fun.
