Home Energy Saving Kits Now Available in ALL Fingal Libraries!

05th July, 2018

We are delighted to announce that our Home Energy Saving Kits have expanded yet again - this time to the Fingal area, where they are now available to borrow from the following public libraries:

  • Balbriggan Library
  • Baldoyle Library
  • Blanchardstown Library
  • Donabate Library
  • Garristown Library
  • Howth Library
  • Malahide Library
  • Rush Library
  • Skerries Library
  • Swords Library

Fingal is the latest library network to introduce the Home Energy Saving Kit scheme, and the kits are already available to borrow in all libraries in Dublin City, Roscommon, Leitrim, Cork City and a selection of libraries in Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown and Wexford.

The kits can be borrowed from these libraries using your library card (i.e. in the same way you borrow a book) and can be loaned for a period of two weeks to help you get a sense of how much energy you are using at home every day.  There are six tools in the kit that address the key areas of energy use in the home - space heating, hot water and electricity consumption - and can identify common household issues such as lack of insulation, poor ventilation and the appliances that might be driving up electricity bills.

The kits were officially launched on the 13th June 2018 by the former Mayor of Fingal Mary McCamley.  For further information on Fingal's libraries, please visit http://www.fingalcoco.ie/Library/
