The toolkit provides library customers with tools, supplies, and information
to reduce their household energy and water use. 3C-REN distributes these kits to participating library locations throughout Ventura, Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obisbo counties. Members of the public can check out toolkits at their local library, use the materials at home, and return the toolkit back to the library to be refilled and checked out again.
