Libraries were green before green was cool. What could be more environmentally friendly than communities sharing single copies of millions of books? “Read it and return it” sounds like a pretty green behavior to me.
Full-text access to thousands of newspapers, magazines, journals and e-books is pretty green too. I like the idea of promoting regular use of your local library as part of a green lifestyle:
And since I conveniently work at Cecil H. Green Library, we can go with “Use your library … it’s Green!”
