There's more to check out this month besides books and movies at the Red Mountain Library, 635 N. Power Rd. From now till May 31, the library will feature a 16-foot pyramid comprised of 120 one-gallon jugs that represent how much water one person consumes each day in their home. The display will also include free dye strip kits for toilet leak detection and many other publications for adults and kids on using water wisely (while supplies last).
