Members of the Electric Auto Association and Plug In America will be on hand to answer questions about the newest electric vehicles (and “plug-in” hybrids now made by all the car manufacturers) on display at this one-day only event.
Several Authors of the new book “What Is the Electric Car?… 79 REASONS to Drive Electric” will also be on hand as well to autograph books for those interested. This one-day family friendly event (open to all ages) will include a Q & A panel featuring several electric car owners.

Several other electric car owners will also be attending (with their 100% electric vehicles) at the “Electric Driveway Party!” held in front of the library immediately following a screening of the film trailer and a special Q & A panel, which starts at 3:00pm in the library’s community room.
