History and Recycling! Come celebrate Alessandro Volta’s 275th birthday on Tuesday, February 18. From 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., Beth McCarthy will be at the library to discuss Volta’s discovery of the electric battery, and how batteries are now found everywhere. Beth will let you know how to dispose of batteries safely, and how to make sure your old batteries are recycled. During this time, Beth will collect your unusable household/personal type batteries, and box them up so they will be safely shipped to reclaim materials such as nickel and lithium.
