Resolution on the importance of sustainable libraries!

SustainRT plans to introduce a resolution at ALA Annual 2015 in San Francisco that will raise the profile of the role libraries can play in fostering sustainable, resilient and regenerative communities. By leveraging the national stage that is ALA Annual we have an opportunity to help broaden our message amongst the membership and therefore to libraries across the world.

We see this as an excellent entry point to introduce ourselves, our mission and to create a larger coalition working on optimizing our library buildings, services and outreach efforts with a sustainable lens.

Our draft resolution is modeled on the New York Library Association’s resolution (found here: http://www.nyla.org/max/4DCGI/cms/review.html?Action=CMS_Document&DocID=1031&MenuKey=news)  which was passed by NYLA Council in February 2014.

To that end we are soliciting input on the draft resolution, viewable here: http://bit.ly/1AFfBsa
