Go Green La Grange - Power Talk
Where does our electricity come from? As communities seek electricity providers for residents who have chosen to aggregate, Go Green La Grange invites residents to learn more about the sources of our electricity. Due to health and environmental concerns related to traditional sources of electricity, some local communities are supporting cleaner sources of electricity as part of their municipal aggregation contracts. Join us as we learn more about the electricity we use and our aggregation choices.

More About La Grange Public Library
This resource is virtually indispensible for La Grange residents. La Grange Public Library opened in 1904 on the same grounds it now exists. The current, rebuilt institution debuted in November 2007. It features a wood-floored, sunny "Quiet Reading Room" equipped with comfy chairs and wooden tables. Also included are a handful of smaller, sunny study rooms with a round table and chairs in each. The library includes self-scanning check-out, laptops for in-library use, gorgeous well-lit display cases for local art on loan and meeting rooms for non-profit use. A separate door to a kids' area ensures the remainder of the building is as quiet as expected. For anyone who would like to volunteer, buy or sell used books, research for fun or for school and also find a story in which to lose themselves, the friendly staff at the La Grange Public Library can advise.
