OWL Secures Grant to Make Important Energy Upgrades

We are thrilled to share that OWL secured grant funding from Eversource to insulate the Colonial House portion of the library. By insulating this section of the library, we anticipate being able to reduce our fuel usage by about 30%.  

At a time of skyrocketing fuel costs, being able to reduce our fuel usage will greatly assist us in mitigating this rising financial burden, freeing up more funds to contribute to the programs and offerings we want to share with you and our greater community. This project not only presents financial savings, but it will also support OWL’s efforts to reduce our carbon footprint.
