Free repair for computers and more July 30

If you have a computer or laptop that is running slowly, not working or seems to have a virus, you can bring it in (with power cords) for free tech support. Volunteers at these events will teach you valuable repair skills, answer questions, and give technical advice about computers and laptops. Computers and laptops will be looked at on a first-come, first-served basis. The consultation and labor are free, and volunteers can offer advice on purchasing parts online or at local repair stores. Volunteers may be able to help with smartphones and tablets depending on capacity.
