The Athens Clarke County Library has won a $100,000 grant to install a solar array at the library's 2025 Baxter Street building.The grant was one of two $100,000 awards this year by EBSCO Information Services, a large library resources provider for academic, public library, government and school customers. The Ipswich, Massachusetts company is a subsidiary of Birmingham, AL's EBSCO Industries, one of Alabama's largest privately held companies.

EBSCO's end users number in the millions each year, according to the company. It manages access to more than 57,000 journals and more than 1 million e-books, among other resources, according to the company.

The Athens and Indian Trails libraries were the winners from among 90 applications from 15 countries, the company announced Friday.

Valerie Bell, director of the Athens Regional Library System, said the first impetus for seeking a grant was to find a way to reduce the library's big electric bills - $8,000 to $10,000 a month.

The library's 2013 renovation and expansion was LEED-certified and its parking lot contains a charging station for electric vehicles.
