We are excited to be celebrating our third year of visiting Montgomery County Public Libraries during their Summer Reading Program. This year’s theme is “A Universe of Stories” and the Department of Environmental Protection’s Residential Energy Program has so many stories about ENERGY that we want to share with kids (and their families) throughout the County. This year, we have special treat because students from the P.O.W.E.R. (Peer Outreach with Energy Resources) Program we be providing these presentations to students and their families.
The P.O.W.E.R. Program is a collaborative between Audubon Naturalist Society and DEP. Through this program, high school students learned how to share valuable information with Montgomery County residents about energy conservation, efficiency, and renewable energy opportunities available to them. These high school students have trained since October to provide the most informative and interactive presentation at libraries this summer.
Join us for one of these presentations and learn about the different forms of energy and see how to use some tools in action like the Kill-a-watt meter and the FLIR thermal camera. Participants will also be encouraged to start sharing their stories about energy with others so that we are all adding to the “Universe of Stories.”
We visited the following Montgomery County Public Library during the Summer 2019. We are grateful for the libraries for hosting us and all the kids and families who joined us.
Until next year!!!
The P.O.W.E.R. Team has gone through the library to find books that relate to the topic we will be presenting at Energy Express this summer – the forms of energy! If you can read one of these books before attending the presentation, GREAT! If you are not able to attend a presentation, feel free to check one of these books out of the library!
Also don’t forget that you can borrow a Kill-a-watt Meter and a FLIR Thermal Camera from the library as well. We will be exploring how to use these tools during the presentation as well.

I like this energy website.
I didn’t know I could check out thermal energy loss checker so I will do that.
You can borrow a thermal camera by visiting this website: https://mdpl.ent.sirsi.net/client/en_US/catalog/search/results?qu=thermal+camera&te=&rt=false%7C%7C%7CSUBJECT%7C%7C%7CSubject – your name will go on the hold list and then you will be notified when it is ready!
