Greening your library: save money and the environment

 
Submitted by Daniel A. Freeman on March 31, 2012 – 9:37pm

Your library is vital to connecting citizens with the knowledge and tools to change habits and lessen our impact on the Earth’s limited resources, and it all starts with leading by example. In this workshop Kathryn Miller, author of Public Libraries Going Green, will discuss practical ideas for how to become green, teach green, and lead green.  Miller will introduce environmentally-friendly, money-saving initiatives that fit your existing building and services. Ideas for hands-on activities, such as rain barrels or butterfly gardens, will help you raise awareness and get your community involved.

Topics include:

  • What it means to be green
  • Ideas for your action plan
  • Socially responsible collection management, from purchase to disposal
  • Program ideas for children, young adults, and adults
