Several weeks ago, Jesse Perez, along with some of the talented teens from ideaLAB, were asked to take a look at the L.E.D. message board that hangs above the Books and Borrowing checkout station. Considering the sign was pretty old, no one was sure if it could even be fixed!

Two weeks later, the sign was back in its place displaying an array of useful, multicolored greetings for DPL customers.

Luis (left) and Hans (right) were eager sign-repair helpers, and were both very interested in the sign's inner workings. After a complete disassemble, a thorough cleaning, and a master reset, the sign was up and running again!

Thanks to Luis and Hans for making a half day's work shrink to just an hour of fun. These ideaLAB guys ROCK!!!

ideaLAB is on Level 4 of the Central Library and open to anyone age 12-19 from 3-6p Monday-Friday and 11-4 on Saturday. Drop in and check out our sweet electronics workstation where you can take something apart or build something awesome from scratch.

Not into playing with electronics (are you sure? you can make some pretty cool stuff!)? No problem, the ideaLAB crew can also help you make art, video games, websites, music, and video or show you how to use our 3D printer! And check out all the awesome Summer of Tech programs coming up soon too!
