I’m at the American Library Association conference in Boston (visit my company’s website to see what we’re launching–our slogan is ‘Thinking Globally’!), talking to librarians about what they can do to green their libraries and become environmental learning centers in their communities. Public libraries are vital social centers, and should be part of all community endeavors to make the world a better place! I remember how much libraries were involved in the first Green Book Fortnight, a major book promotion in the UK where I got my start in this world.
Here are the tips I’ll be handing out to librarians. Many of them apply to offices (and homes) as well.
- Encourage staff and patrons to walk or cycle to the library, and install a convenient bike rack.
