What a wonderful weekend it was. There were so many highlights including spotting the Wellesley Free Library's electric van with reusable decorations at the parade. The Chief of Police was also spotted driving an electric police cruiser.
The Library's van was purchased with capital funds, and the process was facilitated by the Department of Public Work's Brian Zabchuk who made sure to get the $7,500 reimbursement from the Mass EVIP grant, and installed the charging station.
This 2023 Ford E-transit T-350 BEV Cargo van is used primarily to make deliveries to and from the branches.
knitting needles, paper shredders, projectors, Nintendo Switches, karaoke machine, telescope: All (+More) Can Be Borrowed From Our Library!
The Library of Things is a collection at the Wellesley Free Library containing non-traditional items such as knitting needles, WiFi hotspots, puzzles, paper shredders, projectors, Bluetooth speakers, board games, Nintendo Switches, a karaoke machine, a telescope, and so much more!
If you are looking to try something before you buy, consider checking out the Library of Things.
Borrowing is a great way to reduce costs, waste, and storage space.
One item we would like to profile is the induction cooktop. Home and professional chefs are praising the capabilities of this clean electric technology and now you can try it. High performing induction stoves are great to cook on and are highly recommended to help mitigate climate change since they dont use gas. Plus, they are better for our health. Gas stoves have a negative effect on our indoor air quality. We encourage you to test drive the cooktop and compatible pot, too (although yours may just work!).
Swing by the library today and check out any of their exciting items for up to three weeks!
Did you see Chef Jon Kung on TikTok sharing why he prefers induction to gas? He is not alone, at home and professional chefs are praising the capabilities of this clean electric technology.
High performing induction stoves are great to cook on and are highly recommended to help mitigate climate change since they dont use gas. This is not only good for mitigating climate change but, but better for our health. Gas stoves have a negative effect on our indoor air quality and thus our health.
If you want to try it before you buy it, due to a generous donation, there is an induction cooktop to borrow at the Wellesley Free Library in the Library of Things. Use any pot that has a magnetic bottom - many of yours probably do - and notice how much faster it will heat up than conventional gas or electric resistance cooktops and how safe it is!
