The EBSC has a shed on the back parking lot to recycle computers and keyboards, monitors, printers, and other peripheral equipment. Anyone can drive up the the shed at any time to deposit items. If the equipment cannot be given free to seniors for reuse, it will be recycled and kept out of landfills where it would eventually poison the ground water.
A large selection of books and audiotapes is available for borrowing or swapping at the EBSC library.
