Non members in Florida please contact to register

Libraries are a fantastic wealth of information. We are pioneers in circular economy. When we loan books and have them returned, we are supporting this idea of use and reuse. However, by the other side of it: libraries can be exceptionally wasteful. Can libraries combat the amount of waste they generate?

You will learn: 

1) How to run eco-friendly programming
2) How zero waste/low waste can work in a library setting
3) How library staff can be a key component to environmental change through education and policy.
