conserve, and reduce energy costs?
- The library received a grant in 2006 from the Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation to replace internal lighting with new energy efficient lights. The funding, along with funds received from the Efficiency Maine energy savings program, made it possible to upgrade the library lighting to make it more energy efficient and to help reduce energy costs. The result was an annual savings on utility bills and maintenance costs. The new lighting is also softer and creates a much nicer atmopshere in the library.
- Blue plastic recycle bins will be placed throughout the library for paper and cans/bottles
