Harnessing the Wind

The wind can be a powerful tool and a great alternative energy source. We use its power to produce electricity for homes and businesses. With just a turn of a wind blade, a generator is charged and enough electricity is produced in one day to power thousands of homes.

The wind can be a lot of fun too! Kids fly kites, people sail boats, and gardeners add beautiful pinwheels and windchimes to their gardens and homes. And with all the wind we’ve been getting around here lately, why not get out there and enjoy it!

Here at the library, we have books, eBooks, and even some fun programs to get you out and in the wind!
