Event Details

Do you plan to drop off your old electronics at the Village's electronics recycling event on Saturday, June 10? Before you do that, any smart devices, tablets, or laptops need to be wiped clean of your personal information. If you'd like some help with that, stop by the library on Friday and our Adult Services staff members will be happy to assist you in restoring your device to factory settings. 

Please note that your device should be charged and that you should have your account information and passwords in hand. And remember: once the device has been wiped, the data on it is gone for good!
