The Schaumburg Township District Library is now circulating Kill-A-Watt meters to our STDL cardholders. The meters allow users to measure how much electricity their household appliances and electronics consume. They are available at the Audio Visual Information Desk on the first floor. Meters may be checked out for seven days and renewed twice if there are no holds.
Take advantage of this easy, free way to check out the watt usage in your home!
