Energy Efficiency

The library promotes its institutional values, community leadership and commitment to Jefferson County taxpayers by promoting energy efficiency and environmental responsibility around the library. We recycle pounds of paper and cardboard every week and are committed to recycling books and preventing book and paper waste. Look for energy efficient innovations around the library, including smart thermostats, small-area heating and cooling, and high efficiency LED lights. The library plans to meet a portion of its own power needs through solar power within the next 5 years.
