South King Tool Library bulb sale Dec. 11

Anyone interested in lowering their carbon footprint (and saving on energy) is encouraged to attend the bulb sale.

Anyone interested in lowering their carbon footprint (and saving on energy) is encouraged to take advantage of the South King Tool Library’s discounted LED bulb sale from 2-6 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 11.

In addition, the SKTL is hosting an Energy Conservation Workshop at 6 p.m. Dec. 11 at the future home of the South King Tool Library building at the Thornton F. McElroy Masonic Lodge, 1700 S. 340th St., Federal Way. Please note that the location is difficult to find the first time.

Lighting and heating make up a large portion of your home’s energy use. Switching to Energy Star LED bulbs and installing a Nest Smart thermostat will help you manage and reduce your energy costs, according to tool library representatives. Stop by the one-day sale to pick up an $85 Home Efficient Kit for only $10 (plus tax) or some of the other great items, which can lower your power bill. Cash or credit is accepted. No need to register for the sale – just stop by.

Take your energy savings further by attending a free class where Puget Sound Energy will share energy saving tips, winter preparedness information, clarification on current rebates and how to understand your bill. Come to listen, ask questions, or both. Light refreshments, giveaways and door prizes provided.

The South King Tool Library building is currently under construction and is hoping to open in early 2020. This nonprofit community organization will allow members to check out tools and equipment at no charge to care for their homes and yards, plus provides tools for community cleanup events. In addition, the tool library provides free fix-it events, a variety of educational classes and empowers members to DIY.

To sign up for the event, visit www.facebook.com/southkingtools/?ref=br_rs or email info@SouthKingTools.org.
