Sustainable Scarborough Series

Sustainable Scarborough Series

The Scarborough Public Library has already embraced several sustainability practices: photovoltaic (PV) panels are installed on the rooftop to generate electricity for the library, an Electric Vehicle Photovoltaic (EVPV) charging station that can be used at no charge, a pesticide-free lawn, motion-sensor lights that allow us to conserve electricity, and a serious commitment to reducing, reusing, and recycling. Monthly, we will offer a program to encourage Scarborough residents to learn about the many existing ways to interact responsibly with the environment to avoid depletion or degradation of natural resources and allow for long-term environmental quality.
