Library card can help the planet

Climate Action Kits

Household energy costs are a growing concern for B.C. residents. We all use energy in our daily lives to heat our homes and hot water and run household appliances, but how can we reduce these costs?

The Sechelt and Gibsons and District public libraries are pleased to announce the release of Climate Action Kits available to sign out with your library card starting Oct. 6. The kits are a collaboration between local libraries, the Sunshine Coast Regional District and BC Hydro Power Smart.

“Saving energy really means saving money. The kits help families address those costs and raise awareness,” said SCRD board chair Garry Nohr.

The kits include fun and easy to use tools to measure energy use in your home, test new energy saving technologies and learn about local energy resources and cost saving solutions.

The Gibsons and District Public Library invites residents to join them for a fun and engaging introduction to the kits at the library on Saturday, Oct. 6, from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Enter to win great prizes from locally based hardware and building supply stores, Henry Reed Farms, Butcher’s Block and more, to help you reduce your household energy costs and impacts.

Another workshop at Sechelt Public Library is scheduled for Monday, Oct. 15, at 3:30 p.m.

October is Power Smart month. Climate Action Kits are one way you can learn how to help reduce your energy costs. For more information on Climate Action Kits, go to
