The Role of the Library in Environmental Education. Sedro-Woolley Project Report No. 4.
Ways in which a library or resource center can aid students in developing desired attitudes in environmental concerns are briefly described in this paper. The first part of the document, centering on the role of the library in environmental education, offers suggestions and ideas for designing a pleasing environment. Emphasis is placed on creating a special section where environmental materials are housed within the library so that teachers and students are motivated and will feel comfortable in using the library extensively. The second and major portion of the document is comprised of an appendix listing holdings in the Environmental Materials Center at Cascade Junior High School, Sedro Woolley, Washington. This part of the document contains a bibliography of nearly 300 books, magazines, audiovisual materials, and related aids. The document offers not only guidelines for the library setting, but also suggestions for typical environmental education library holdings for other schools and for teachers desiring to create such a center.
