It’s Earth Day and being energy-efficient just got a whole lot easier. Arlington residents can now plug into the first Energy Lending Library in the country to help identify energy waste in homes and provide energy efficiency solutions.

Now available with the swipe of your library card (and for free) are:

Thermal imaging cameras that indicate where insulation is missing and where air leaks occur in homes.

Energy meters to understand how much electricity appliances and electronics use. Understanding energy use in the home is the first step toward a “greener” home.

A curated booklist offering energy saving tips to complete “do-it-yourself” energy efficiency projects that save energy and money. Books are for adults and kids with a few in Spanish, too.

How to Get a Free LED from AIREThe Energy Lending Library was created by the Arlington Initiative to Rethink Energy (AIRE) in partnership with Arlington Public Library.

Also, don’t miss out on the LED bulb swaps happening this Saturday and Sunday at Central Library. Bring in one old incandescent light bulb and exchange it for an energy efficient LED bulb, at no cost!

One LED per household, while supplies last!
