Flip The Switch - Track Your Library’s Progress

As part of the Queens Library’s award-winning new Flip The Switch campaign, we’ve chosen 13 community libraries who will try to cut their energy costs and make energy-saving improvements to their buildings.

The timeline for the competition is December 1, 2014 to April 15, 2015. Final reports on the competition’s results are due to DCAS DEM by July 1, 2015.

During the competition, the QPL libraries below will Flip The Switch and change the way that they use energy. We will reward the community library that does the most to cut their energy costs this winter.

Whichever community library can reduce its energy usage by the highest percentage compared to the amount it used the previous year wins. Each library must also offer programs that teach our customers about the importance of energy conservation.
