The community is invited to see the new solar educational materials and solar information kiosk that will be unveiled at the Miller-Golf Links Library Branch at 5 p.m. today, Monday, April 23. Following the ribbon-cutting ceremony, there will be a Solar Power 101 presentation. Both events are free and open to the public. RSVP for Solar Power 101 to email@example.com or 520-792-1093.
Pima County Public Library and Bruce Plenk, Solar Energy Coordinator for the City of Tucson, worked together to identify and purchase solar-related materials including books, magazine subscriptions, and DVDs. The solar kiosk provides live reporting regarding how much solar energy is being produced in our community. Library patrons now will be able to check out a device called the Kill-A-Watt, which plugs into appliances to indicate their electricity usage and efficiency.
In recognition of the funding support to purchase the solar educational materials obtained by the Office of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, before she stepped down in January, the collection will be named the Gabrielle Giffords Collection. All of these resources will be initially available at the Miller-Golf Links Library Branch, but will be moving to other libraries in the system.
