A different kind of ribbon cutting will be held today the the library in Redding.
A green ribbon will be cut at the Mark Twain Library marking the completion of a solar panel installation at the library. The panels were installed over the summer and have been working since September. The library has been updating the building's energy savings on their website.
To date, the library has saved the equivalent of 4 tons of carbon dioxide.
Today is also First Selectman Natalie Ketcham's last official day in office. She decided not to seek an 8th term in office. The ribbon cutting is at 10:30am.
