Sneaks the Cat Showcases the Library’s New Electric Car  @ a Laurel Branch Library Charging Station

 

Laurel, MD – The Prince George’s County Memorial Library System’s (PGCMLS’) mascot, Sneaks the Cat, is ready to roll in PGCMLS’ newest vehicle: an electric car, the Nissan Leaf. “It only makes sense,” says the Library’s Co-CEO Michael Gannon, “for us to take advantage of our own electric charging stations at our award winning Laurel Branch Library.” The two charging stations and now the electric car are just two of the “green” features throughout the Library System.

 

Other PGCMLS “green” features include: roof-mounted solar panels, permeable pavers in the parking lot that filter storm water run-off, recycling, green cleaning supplies, filtered water and energy efficient lighting. Additionally, 10 percent of all the electricity the Library purchases is generated by wind power. When asked if more charging stations are expected in the Library’s future, Michael Gannon said, “As we renovate and build new branches, we will be adding more charging stations in the parking lots.”
