Solar Library


My husband is a fantastic community member; he volunteers all over the place, is on loads of committees and works tirelessly for several local organisations. he's my conscience in action. i like to tell him we cant all be that fabulous so i let him own the volunteer spotlight. For the last 2 years he's served as a member of the local library fundraising committee to raise enough for a new library; hes amazingly great at getting people to hand over lots of money and i think he could sell ice to the Inuit. When that folded after the library was built he started a new one and he has been working for over a year to raise enough money, interest and sponsorship to get the new library outfitted with PV solar cells to generate and cover the complete energy needs of the library and the council offices. Today he recieved a call from the council engineers with the great news that council has approved the $60,000 investment. Nobody thought he would succeed. He is a walking example of giving it a go and definitely a 'glass half full' kind of guy, his enthusiasm is unlimited. Well done Si.
