The San Leandro Library is partnering with Tech Exchange to hold a Tech Fair and “Appy” Hour at the Main Library. Tech Exchange, a non-profit dedicated to providing digital equity to East Bay residents, employs an environmentally sustainable, re-use model by refurbishing donated computers and providing them to eligible East Bay families, schools and community organizations. Tech Exchange also supports the community with affordable Internet signup, digital skills trainings, and youth internship opportunities. The City of San Leandro recently signed an agreement to donate all its surplus computer equipment to Tech Exchange.
