Go Green @ Your Illinois Library

What a great state-wide, collaborative project  – Go Green @ Your Illinois Library –  of Illinois Library Association in coordination with The Field Museum’s division of Environment, Culture, and Conservation (ECCo), with funding from the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity.

The project involves libraries holding the conversations about sustainability in their communities, pursuing activities/goals that make sense to them and their respective communities, and communicating impacts, small and large, back to this project community.

Read case studies about what libraries are doing, share experiences through their Go Green blog or the Go Green IL Resource Map, or check out the section on What does Green Mean? which offers an audio post of poetry about being green.  Other information on their site: Learn to Rethink Green; Learn from the Past;Collaborate for the Future; check out their wonderful green tools and links.

Also, check out AL Focus this week  for Greg Landgraf’s video interview clips about this new project.
