Mesa: Red Mountain Library Hosts Water - Use It Wisely Campaign

Other water ~ This month, the Red Mountain Library is offering more than just books and movies. From now until May 31, visitors to the library can view a 16-foot pyramid made of 120 one-gallon jugs that represent how much water one person consumes each day in their home. Additionally, free dye strip kits for toilet leak detection and other publications on using water wisely will be available while supplies last.

The library is also hosting several events related to water conservation throughout the month of May. On May 13, University of Arizona Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners will be available from 10 a.m. to noon to answer questions about when, what, where and how to plant in Arizona. On May 20 from 11 a.m. to noon, Donna DiFrancesco of the Environmental and Sustainability Department will present a program on how we use water and our top five ways to save it. Finally, on May 24 from 9:30 to 10 a.m., Councilmember Goforth will join Wayne Drop, the Water - Use It Wisely mascot for a special storytime featuring water-related books for children ages 3 to 5.
