Kill-A-Watt Meter - Save the Planet!

Check It Out At Your Local Alameda County Library Branch!

Alameda County Library has Kill-A-Watt meters at all branches for customers to check out. Kill-A-Watt meters are devices to help consumers in their efforts to track and reduce energy use. The Kill-A-Watt is a small electronic device which plugs into a power outlet. You then connect an appliance to it and get a reading of how much electricity that appliance is using, as well as the cost.

Kill-A-Watt meters can be checked out at your County Library branch for seven days. For more information, please ask at the Information Desk of the Library.

The Alameda County Library system is proud to serve over 539,000 residents. The Library circulates over 6.5 million items annually, with over 2.4 million visitors to our website and 5 million visitors walking through our doors.
