Creating a Sustainable Lifestyle -- Talk

The public is invited to the Fincastle Library to hear Genevieve Goss, conservation steward for the Valley Conservation Council, on Thursday, May 15 when she will speak about creating a sustainable lifestyle. The talk will begin at 7 p.m.

The library is hosting the event.

Goss will offer information and suggestions on ways to reduce your family's carbon footprint while enhancing your quality of life.

Topics will include sustainability issues such as protecting water resources, energy conservation, local foods, recycling and making choices and changes for a more responsible life.

In addition, the Roanoke Valley Cool Cities Coalition will be handing out free light bulbs at the Fincastle Library on May 15. The light bulbs are compact fluorescent bulbs that are more energy efficient than incandescent bulbs.

The Fincastle Library is located at 11 Academy Street in Fincastle next to the Botetourt County Health Department. For directions, call the library at 473-8339.
