    There’s free parking but will there be any charging stations for electric cars?

  2. Jerry Scholts says:

    Way cool..I sure hope famous stock car driver and serial entrepreneur Jerrod Sessler will be there to help teach me.

  3. Lee Moyer says:

    There is a 120 volt outlet in the area of the alternative fuel stalls by the stairs. A real charging station would be nice, but probably anyone attending this event lives within the range of an electric vehicle.

  4. Fred Coyes says:

    I have to come all the way from Ballard. If there isn’t a plug in I may not be able to get back home.

    • Shari says:

      @Fred, the library is just a block from the Burien Transit Center, which gets local and express routes from DT and Rapid Rides from the Tukwila light rail station.

    • Captain obvious says:

      Look at the different Park and Ride locations and take public transportation. Just make sure to lock your doors and don’t leave any valuables in plain view.

      Burien library is about a 5 minute walk from the burien Park and Ride.
