Public Libraries Going Green
Miller, Kathryn
ALA Editions
Going green is now a national issue, and patrons expect their library to respond in the same way many corporations have. Libraries are going green with logos on their Web sites, programs for the public, and a host of other initiatives. This is the first book to focus strictly on the library's role in going green, helping you with: (1) Collection development, disposal, and recycling issues; (2) Green equipment, technology, and facilities; (3) Programming ideas and supporting tables and figures; and (4) Ways to get the community involved in the process. Highly practical and bursting with ideas, this guide will serve as a quick reference source for going green in your library. Contents include: (1) The Library's Green Role; (2) The Library as a Green Place; (3) Green Services at Your Library; and (4) The Library as Green Teacher. Acknowledgments, Introduction, Appendix, Resources and Index are also included.
