Speaking of the Library...

I'm a fan of our local library on Facebook, which means I get updates on interesting events and offerings there.

This information was made available to me through the library's facebook status today:

50 Power Check Energy Meters from Xcel Energy will be available for check out at Hennepin County libraries. The meters are easy to use and can be plugged into any standard 120-volt electric appliance to measure voltage, electricity cost, and electric consumption. Hennepin County Commissioner Randy Johnson, 5th District, said, "Whatever you believe about global warming and climate change, everyone should be interested in saving some money by using less energy." The meters are packaged in a kit that also contains information booklets and a USB cord to upload data to your computer (optional).

Power Check Meters may be reserved online through the Hennepin County Library catalog (keyword search on Power Check) for pick up at any Hennepin County Library (Nokomis and Plymouth are closed for construction).

So, there you go. Yet another reason to love the library.
