    Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

    Two electric vehicle charging stations for public use are located on the 2nd floor of the Main Library parking garage. A library card is not required to use them. They charge at a level 2 rate (240 volts). Charging costs $3/hour.

    To use the library's vehicle charging stations, you will first need to download the free ChargePoint app. Once you have the app set up, you can simply hold your device up to the charging station to activate the process and release the charging cord. The app will alert you when the vehicle is fully charged, so you do not need to remain with your vehicle while it is charging.

    Solar Power

    Located on the roof of the Main Library are 552 photovoltaic panels that will soon begin capturing the sun's energy and coverting it into 325,000 kWh of power a year. It is anticipated that this solar power will supply 20–30% of the building's annual energy needs.
