Thanks to everyone who came to our our Low Tech to High Tech Exhibit Reception last month.  Our new "Low Tech to High Tech" Exhibit highlights the changes of technology from the abacus to modern day marvels, and is only available to the public for two more weeks.

We expanded our exhibit for the afternoon with additional old and new technology from our inventory.
