“A New Service…for Your Car!

And you thought everything your library offered was just inside. Not so! In partnership with Pinellas County Government and Duke Energy, Palm Harbor Library is now a participant in the “Park & Plug” program. The library offers two electric car charging stations but here’s the best part, it’s all free.

Taken from the “Park & Plug Reference Guide”, here are some frequently asked questions:

How does a driver start a charging session?  
To start a charging station, the driver will first need to download the free Greenlots app and sign up at Detailed instructions to help them get started are also available on the charging station.

Can an electric vehicle use this charging station?
Yes! The connector, J1772, is an industry-standard for Level 2 charging. CHAdeMO or CCS are the industry standard for DC fast charging.

How can a driver find the Greenlots app?
The app is available for free on the App Store or Google Play.

Who should the driver call if they need help?
Advise library personnel who will then follow-up with the Park & Plug team.

The locations for the charging stations are near the library’s loading dock area, north-side of the building. Part of the reason for selecting these two spaces is that they are under camera surveillance.    

So now when you visit your library to pick up some free books, DVD’s, puzzles, Graphic Novels, vinyl, musical instruments, STEAM Kits and so much more, you can also get some free energy.

It’s just not inside service anymore.
