Finding Good Homes For Your Electronic Stuff This Spring

The Cooper-Siegel Community Library is looking for donations of e-readers such as Nooks, Kindles, etc..  If you are considering discarding your e-readers, we would love to use them in our classes to train our library patrons how to use these devices. 

If you're getting rid of old cell phones, MP3 players, digital cameras, GPS units, laptops and handheld gaming devices during spring cleaning, the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium are looking for your help in saving endangered animals.  They are currently holding a recycling drive here at the library, and you can find the collection box at the front of the library.  The Zoo and Aquarium will receive funds from Eco-Cell to help endangered species. 100% of the funds raised will be donated to several different conservation organizations that the Zoo is involved with including: The International Snow Leopard Trust, Painted Dog Conservation and Polar Bears International.

If you donate items for the Zoo and Aquarium drive, you can enter a drawing for free admission.  Ask for raffle entries at the circulation desk at the front of the library.
