Vol. 14, No. 24 – Aug 25 – Sept 7, 2021 – Ojai News & Events

Javier Saucedo of Ventura County’s Green Business Program will visit the Ojai Library at 2pm on Friday, September 10, to explain and demonstrate the contents of the DIY Home Energy Savings Toolkits currently available for lending from Ventura County Library locations.

3C-REN and the Ventura County Library have partnered to create the DIY Home Energy Savings Toolkit. The toolkit includes tools, equipment, and a guide to help you save energy and increase the comfort of your home. There are items for you to keep, like LED light bulbs, outlet gaskets, weatherstripping, and water leak detection dye tablets; and tools to return, like an infrared laser thermometer and a Kill-A-Watt meter. Join this event for a demo of the kit, to ask your questions, and to learn about other sustainability programs in your area.

Javier Saucedo joined the construction trade in 1990, continuing until 2006 when he became an energy conservation specialist working with SoCalGas, SCE, and California weatherization programs. He currently leads the County’s Green Business Program, performs residential and commercial energy audits, and oversees quality control on energy saving upgrades.

This event is free and open to the public. For additional information, contact Ron Solórzano, Regional Librarian, at (805) 218-9146. The Ojai Library is located at 111 East Ojai Avenue in Ojai, CA. Hours of service are 10am to 8pm Monday through Thursday and 12pm to 5pm Friday through Sunday.

Finding Light, a new exhibition featuring artworks by the Ojai Studio Artists at the Ojai Valley Museum. Using a wide variety of mediums and styles, sixty artists depict how they found light. View the exhibition for inspiration about how you too, can continue to find the light in your life.

Although viewing artwork in person is a much richer experience, an online version of the exhibition is available on the museum’s website, OjaiValleyMuseum.org.

The exhibition will be on view through the end of October 11.

In addition to Finding Light, small exhibitions on a range of topics related to the history of the valley, and a diorama of the Sespe Wilderness, are always on view at the museum.

The Ojai Valley Museum is located at 130 W. Ojai Avenue in Ojai.
