Special activities designed to introduce children to storytelling and to build a foundation for reading readiness happen every Tuesday & Thursday at 11 a.m. in the story room at the Moreno Valley Public Library. Thursdays will have a unique bilingual focus. Please arrive 15 minutes early as parking can be limited.

The hottest part of the day is also the time when energy demand is at its highest - from 12 to 6 p.m. Here are simple ways that the City of Moreno Valley, Moreno Valley Utility, and the Community Energy Partnership encourage you to reduce your energy usage during peak hours to help you save when it counts most:
  • Keep the thermostat on your A/C set to 78F.
  • Use major appliances after 9 p.m.
  • Make sure coffee pots, radios and other electronics have been turned off or are unplugged when not in use.
  • Turn off your computer screen saver (it wastes power by keeping your computer active).
  • Set your computer to turn your monitor off after 10 minutes of non-use and your hard drive after 20 minutes.
  • Devices such as laptops can run on battery power during the day and then be recharged at night. Don't forget to unplug when not charging.
  • Not using your oven during warmer temperatures will help your air conditioner work less to cool your home.
  • Set pool pumps for overnight cycle.
The state of California may issue a Flex Alert - an urgent call to conserve energy immediately. When you hear a Flex Alert, save electricity quickly by turning off unnecessary lights and following any of the tips mentioned here. Go to www.flexalert.org or www.moval.org/utility for more information.

Back-to-School Safety Message



There is a lot that can be done to plan for disasters, to limit risk, to increase the safety of students and teachers, and to ensure that schools recover quickly. However, the time to prepare is now!

Prepare a "school emergency supplies" kit for each of your children. Let them help you put the kit together. What they have on hand when a disaster occurs could make a big difference in their safety and survival. A list of some of the recommended items that could be included in each child's emergency supplies kit is as follows:
  •  Emergency drinking water (3-day to one-week supply)
  •  Non-perishable food (3-day to one-week supply)
  •  First aid kit and book
  •  Essential medications
  •  Lightstick or a flashlight with extra batteries
  •  Identification card
  •  Family photos
  •  Towelettes
  •  Blanket
  •  Medical release card
  •  Emergency telephone numbers
  •  Change of clothing
  •  Favorite toy
Teach your children about what to do in an emergency. Make sure they know their own names, addresses, and telephone numbers as well as the full names and contact information for parents, and a second adult emergency contact. To learn more about school safety or for other helpful information go to the Moreno Valley Fire Department webpage.
