LightsOutHouston 2013 @ HCPL

lights out houston 2013In observance of the 6th Annual LightsOutHouston initiative, Harris County Commissioners Court has authorized Facilities and Property Management to lead a countywide effort, in conjunction with the City of Houston, the Greater Houston Partnership and Central Houston Inc. to turn off all non-essential lights at the end of the day.

Turning out unnecessary lights when you leave a room is one of the easiest ways you can help the environment, conserve valuable resources and save money. Remember--unlike humans and other living things, furniture does not need light to survive. Your sofa, ottoman and coffee table, as well as your work station and file cabinets are not afraid of the dark.

Harris County Public Library encourages you to make turning off unnecessary lights a year-round habit. If a light is not needed for safety or some other necessity, turn it off!

Let's Beat the Heat! Without Breaking the Bank.

OK, I don't know about you but my electric bill is already climbing, and May just started.  Wow!  It is hot outside!  Can you just imagine what it's going to be like in August.  Ugh!  Who can afford the air conditioning bill?!

Guess what, at the Maud Marks Library, we have the answer to your electric needs.  Next Tuesday, May 15 at 7 PM we will have some one here to show you simple ways to cut your energy costs this summer.  Whether it's raising the temperature in your house by one degree or changing out your light bulbs learn what you can do to save money this summer without breaking a sweat.
