    Electrify your life with reading! April 7 – 13 is National Library Week. We want to encourage our customers to participate and enrich their lives with great books.

    One of the best ways to enjoy reading is by sharing it with your whole family. We’ve compiled a list of five books about electricity for kids that work as a useful safety tool and a fun bonding experience for parents and teachers alike.

    Next time your family visits the local library, check out one of these books and start a conversation about electrical safety with your kids.
