Fortis Alberta has donated a Kill A Watt power monitor to the Delia Public Library. The monitor can be borrowed just like a book and has a 3 week lending period. You can cut your energy costs and find out what appliances are actually worth keeping plugged in. Simply connect these appliances to the Kill A WattEZ™, and it will assess how efficient they really are. The large LCD display will count consumption by the kilowatt-hour, same as your local utility.

Are you looking to increase your physical activity and walking, but not quite ready to commit to buying your own pedometer? The Delia Public Library and UWALK have the answer for you! Sign up at Uwalk.ca to get started. You can log your activity on the website - your daily steps, plus flights of stairs climbed, and minutes of moderate and vigorous physical activity. You can use your own pedometer, activity tracker, or mobile app on Apple and Android devices or pedometers are now available to be signed out at the Library. UWALK was developed by the Faculty of Physical Education and Recreation at the University of Alberta and funded by the Government of Alberta.
