Creating a hub for resilient and sustainable community culture is a short column in American Libraries, providing advice for how and why public libraries can be and should be a place for resource, support and opportunities for their communities including examples such as seed libraries, co-working spaces in libraries, and community commons.
A new publication is now available called Going Green in North American Public Libraries: A Critical Snapshot of Policy and Practice and it will be presented 10 August 2010 – 15 August 2010 (in Gothenburg, Sweden) at the Environmental Sustainability and Libraries SIG Open Session.
