NEIGHBORHOOD NOTES | Upcoming Tangletown events


A couple of interesting events are coming up in Tangleown very soon. 

The Washburn Library, 5244 Lyndale, will be celebrating its 40th anniversary from 1-3 PM on Saturday, October 2.  There will be “events for adults and children, refreshments, and special guests”, according to the Friends of the Washburn Library and the Hennepin County Library Association, the hosts of the event.

The anniversary celebration is the first event for the newly formed Friends of the Washburn Library.  They are also sponsoring a book sale on December 4.  For more information on this organization, go to

Tangletown is part of a new residential energy program called Community Energy Services.  Residents who attend a workshop on October 19 at Washburn High School, 6:30 PM will receive the following:

“a customized home visit, a $400 energy efficiency package for a co-pay of only $30!  This  includes two energy professionals from the Center for Energy and Environment spending an hour and half with you in your home.  They will perform a blower door test, which measures air leaks, as well as install energy and money saving materials.  Some of these materials may include: compact fluorescent light bulbs, a programmable thermostat, low-flow showerheads, faucet aerators, pipe wrap and more!”
