Green Marketing Through Your Library’s Web Site

Check out Lake County Library System’s Green Web page for ideas on how to market your green resources for your library.  The site highlights cover images of green books by various genres the library owns and mentions their green library tote bags for sale.

Chicago Public Library has a page called “Resources for learning about the environment” highlighting a recommended book, listings of local green related events,  links to relevant databases, featured searches, and helpful Web sites.

The Rosemary Garfoot Public Library actually posts their real time energy reports online for the public to view by date.

The Canton Public Library has Green Pages with links and local information on recycling, buying green, how to save money and energy, and more. They spotlight some ideas (such as what their library “green team” is doing) and mention local green events as well.

…and I’m sure there are many more libraries with this type of marketing; please comment if you know of one that I haven’t listed here!

  1. The Schaumburg Township District Library in Schaumburg, IL has a “Come to the Green Side” blog on their website at The blog includes some of the Chicagoland County Recyling Guides, upcoming green events, local drop-off sites, green tips, info on hazardous waste collections and much more.

    In 2009 we will be having a blog contest that the public can enter by leaving a comment that mentions at least one way their household has “gone green” in the past year. All who leave comments will then be entered in a drawing for a bag full of green goodies.
