Make your library Earth friendly! Beth Filar-Williams, who showed Colorado library staff how to “go green,” comes to NSLS to offer simple, easy to implement, cost saving initiatives that can help make your library more eco-friendly. Beth will also look into larger scale projects, such as green building options. During this workshop participants will explore real-life situations as they create workable, detailed plans of action to take back to their libraries. Topics to be covered include recycling, reducing waste, green building, greener cleaning, travel tips, art projects and other fun ideas, and more.

At the end of this workshop participants will be able to:
• Understand the importance of environmentally friendly practices in the library setting
• Access greening resources to share with other library staff
• Know of ways to save money, or to possibly earn money, for their library
• Create an action plan utilizing “greening” ideas that can be implemented at their library

Added Bonus! The first 10 people to register for this workshop will receive a “Go Green!” handled recyclable tote bag from Demco. Bag measures 12"H x 16"W x 6"D and is hand washable.
