Green Residence Halls

Not quite library related, but a cool news item I just read:  University of Illinois gets an all green residence hall.  This over 200+ bed dorm offers “geothermal system to heat rooms and water, water-saving plumbing, as well as environmentally friendly lighting and paint.” It was funded by a grant from the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation.
