Libraries are looking for ways to both stay more relevant and offer more useful services to their communities. It's no surprise to us that many are starting to offer tools and other infrequently used good.

3D Printer for under $300? Arrrr! If you get one soon. The Buccaneer from Pirate3D has launched on Kickstarter.

Great example of managing a crowd funding project too - hit their goal in 10 minutes by building up anticipation and lining up backers before the project kicked off.

My Gluten Free Oatmeal Pancake Recipe

Mix Dry ingredients:
2 Cups of Oats
1 Cup of Gluten Free Four *
1.5 tsp of baking soda
.5 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1-2 tablespoons brown sugar  (optional)


Mix Wet Ingredients separately:
2 eggs
1 cup plain low fat (2% works well) yogurt (regular or greek)**
1+ cup {cows, coconut, almond, rice) milk***
3 tablespoons of oil
1 tsp vanilla extra and/or almond extract.

I recommend letting the ingredient set for a a couple minutes (helps the flour absorb the moisture more) while the pan/griddle warms. Serve with your favorites toppings (fresh fruit, maple syrup, etc.).

They're also great the next day in the toaster... if there are any left.

Notes: 

I usually combine all the ingredients then start warming up the pan/griddle to give the flour time to fully absorb the moisture from the wet ingredients. 

* I use a mix of 45% out, 45% Brown Rice and 10% Tapioca flour (I grind organic brown rice and oats in my vitamix). 

** If you're also dairy adverse (lactose intolerant/etc.) feel free to substitute a cup of "milk" for the yogurt. 

* If you use greek yogurt rather than regular, you may need to add a bit more milk to get the right consistency.

Even with the increased costs due to cycling fossil fuel plants more often, there are huge savings in both costs and in emissions by going to renewables. This study looked at up to 33% renewables (wind and solar).
Wear and tear on equipment costs millions, but fuel savings are worth billions.
