With all of the resources to ‘check out’ at City of Mesa Libraries, we’ve just included another unique addition. Just inside the lobby at Mesa Main, you can’t miss the 16-foot tall pyramid of 136 water jugs – a display that reminds, and in many cases, shocks consumers with the fact that they use this much water every day.

Free water saving tips, Xeriscape landscape ideas and more are also available at the exhibit which promotes the value of water in everyday life while underlining the importance of using water wisely and saving money by lowering utility bills.

Bring the family, scout groups, or students to witness this impressive demonstration – which also makes a great backdrop for a selfie! It will be showing for the month of January at the City of Mesa Main Branch Library at 64 E. First St. And, if you’re wondering how your water use stacks up to the average, we’ll help you do the math to see how you compare here.

If you miss the Mesa showing … don’t worry. You’ll be able to catch it on tour in Queen Creek in February and Glendale in March.
