The Altadena Library Presents the [i] cell Interactive Kiosk

The Altadena Library District is excited to announce the installation of a new interactive kiosk. The [i]cell Interactive Kiosk is programmed with California-specific water conservation information and is available for use by all patrons.

Over the last year, Altadena Library worked to install a drought-tolerant, water conservation demonstration garden on its grounds. Working with the Foothill Municipal Water District and using grants awarded by local organizations, the garden was ready and open to the public as of July. The Library is committed to becoming more energy efficient, including more water-wise. The installation of the Demonstration Garden helps the Library to lead by example and to engage the community through educational events about the importance of water conservation. Events have ranged from installing a drought-tolerant garden to tips on water saving at home.

The [i]cell Interactive Kiosk gives the Library an opportunity to continue the work it has been doing with the water conservation garden. As California’s drought is estimated to continue for the foreseeable future, the [i]cell Save Water Interactive Kiosk is an on-going way in which Altadena Library can communicate with the community about water conservation. In addition, the Library will be expanding its collection to include updated materials about water conservation, drought-tolerant gardens, and other means to save water.

“We want to make the Library the primary source for our community for learning how to save water in our semi-desert climate.”

This new and exciting interactive feature in Altadena Library was made possible by a grant from the California State Library and the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA).
