We hope you’ve enjoyed our sustainable library series: “Growing Greener Libraries.” We’ve learned a lot about sustainable library service, what it means to the future of libraries, and how we can make small changes to create a big impact on the environment.
A special thanks goes out to the following guest writers. Each contributor provided a fun and informative post!
- Jennifer Owens, Green Opportunities, Assistant Director of Access Services at Fremont Public Library District.
- Christie Chandler-Stahl, Building Sustainability, Director of Branch Services at the Rakow Branch, Gail Borden Public Library District.
- Sarah Dolley, Green Activities, Children’s Librarian at the Fountaindale Public Library.
- Laura Barnes, Public Libraries as Community Sustainability Leaders, Librarian at the UIUC Prairie Research Institute and Executive Director of the Great Lakes Regional Pollution Prevention Roundtable.
The conversation doesn’t have to stop just because the series is over! Check out our Growing Greener Libraries page at WebJunction Illinois for awesome resources and upcoming events. Join the discussion forums and share your green ideas OR post a successful green program on our Facebook page.
