Firewood Moisture Meter Loan Program

Monday, January 25, 2021
50 libraries across Vermont have meters to loan
Rockingham Free Public Library
65 Westminster St
Bellows Falls, VT

 

A moisture meter is the most reliable way to determine which wood in a wood pile is ready to burn. Burning wet wood is a waste of money and energy Рwood burns most efficiently when the moisture content is between 15 and 20%. Green wood can have a moisture content of over 50%. Dry wood burns hotter, more efficiently, and produces less smoke than wet wood. The Vermont Department of Environmental Science’s Air Quality & Climate Division in partnership with the Department of Libraries is launching this moisture meter loan project at 50 public libraries, including Rockingham Library.

Anyone with a Rockingham Library card can borrow this meter. Library cards are free to Rockingham residents, taxpayers, and WNESU students and teachers. This includes all residents in Rockingham, Bellows Falls, Saxtons River, Bartonsville, Brockway Mills, and Cambridgeport. Non-Resident cards are available for those that live outside of Rockingham for a 6- or 12-month fee.

For more information about borrowing the moisture meter or applying for a library card, email programming@rockinghamlibrary.org, call the Library (802) 463-4270 or go rockinghamlibrary.org
