Green Library in Second Life

Ever visited the 3-D virtual world of Second Life (SL)? If you do, check out Emerald City, the environmental city of SL sponsored by the Colorado Association of Libraries, research firm TAP Information Services, and the Alliance Library System in Illinois. And while there, look for the Sustainable Living Library created by Eileen Dumas (of Aurora Public Library, CO) and Victoria Petersen (of Mancos Public Library, CO) in January 2009. The Sustainable Living Library (blog) provides resources, host classes, displays exhibits, and even provides an organic green market.  They hope to soon create virtual vegan clothing made of organic cotton and hemp. Everyone is welcome including the public,  librarians, students and even teachers who could bring in their class for a lecture.  Read more in this  SLJ article.
