"Would an e-bike make your life easier? Find out for free!

Vital Communities’ Upper Valley E-bike Lending Library will be in Woodstock from Friday September 2nd to Sunday September 4th. Borrowers will be able to check out an e-bike from the Norman Williams Public Library to find out how these bikes can replace car trips and transform their daily transportation needs.

The fleet includes a variety of bikes at different price points, including a cargo bike with a rear rack and several standard bikes, all with an electric assist that helps riders get around with less effort and scale hills that previously seemed impossible.

E-bikes are a transportation option that is becoming more familiar and necessary, and the goal of this program is to introduce Vermonters to how they can be incorporated into everyday life and replace car trips. From commuting to work to picking up groceries and carrying kids to school, e-bikes provide an extra boost of power that makes miles feel shorter and cargo feel lighter.

To reserve an e-bike head to: https://vitalcommunities.org/transportation/upper-valley-e-bike-lending-library/

Join Rob Anderegg to learn how he has taken action to reduce his home's carbon footprint! By thinking about our energy use in a similar way to how we set a budget for our money, we can begin to make a long-range plan for reducing our fossil fuel use. The key steps include keeping track of where we are using energy and then looking for ways to reduce that use or shift to cleaner sources of energy. A data-driven approach lets us prioritize what things to do first. No matter where you are on the spectrum of fossil fuel independence, this approach can help you identify and take actions to reduce your carbon footprint.
